Juneteenth Holiday

Saturday, June 19, 2021

Juneteenth is recognized each year on June 19. On that day in 1865, Major General Gordon Granger and his Union troops landed in Galveston, TX and announced that the Civil War had ended. Major General Gordon read a proclamation declaring that all enslaved people were free. The first Juneteenth was celebrated a year later in Texas and today is recognized across the country to mark this important milestone (Governor's Press Office). The Disposal Area will be closed on Saturday, June 19, 2021, to commemorate the holiday.
