June 19 — Juneteenth celebrates the day that enslaved African Americans in Texas were informed that they were free. On June 19, 1865, more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, Union soldiers arrived in Galveston and began to enforce the end of slavery in Texas. Sadly, the news did not reach Burton until the first week of August.

 

We’re honoring Juneteenth on June 18 with celebratory cupcakes at The Corner Shoppe and the Client Choice Pantry.
