emanicipation from slavery in 1863

June 19 Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the U.S. Juneteenth is commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans, referencing June 19, 1865, because the enforcement of the ending of slavery had been slow and inconsistent in Texas, as the most remote state in the former Confederacy. President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. Republicans want to limit teaching why it's a holiday. They don't like schools teaching about the history of racism.
