The celebration of Juneteenth this year felt different in light of social events sweeping the country.  For those of you unfamiliar, Juneteenth is a holiday that celebrates the end of slavery in America, as the Union army finally reached the slave state of Texas and announced the end of the Civil War there on June 19, 1865.  There has been a groundswell of calls for the date to be federally recognized as a national holiday.
