The eleventh National Independence Day became the twelfth legal official holiday, celebrating the emancipation of the last enslaved African Americans. On that day in 1865, Union soldiers led by General Gordon Granger arrived in the coastal city of Galveston, Texas to deliver General Order No. 3, which officially ended slavery in the state.
On Monday, June 19, 2023, the Federal Reserve will be closed in observance of Juneteenth Day.
