Honoring Juneteenth

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. It was on June 19, 1865, that Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, made it to Galveston, Texas with the news that the Civil War had ended and that slaves were now free. This news arrived two and a half years after President Lincoln signed into effect the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed slaves held in the 11 Confederate states that had seceded from and which were at war against the Union. The Proclamation became official on January 1, 1863, and in every Confederate state, except Tennessee and Texas, the Proclamation went into immediate effect in the Union-occupied areas.

The Emancipation Proclamation had little to no impact on Texas due to the lack of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger and his regiment, they were finally able to overcome the Confederacy.

The celebrations that followed the reading of the proclamation by General Gordon Granger began a Texan tradition that has lasted for over one hundred and fifty-five years, and today is celebrated and hosted in cities across America and beyond.

Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month

Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month
In May 2023, we commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, a time when we honor the achievements and rich histories of these minority groups in America. This observance originated as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week in 1978 and was officially established by President Jimmy Carter. May holds significance as it marks the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States in 1843, on May 7, as well as Golden Spike Day on May 10, which celebrates the completion of the transcontinental railroad—a monumental project largely constructed by Chinese laborers.
