PHOTOS: Taking to the common for Juneteeth

  • Peace and justice demonstrators welcome Juneteenth on Saturday on the Greenfield Common. Juneteenth (a blending of June and 19th) recognizes the day in 1865 that Union troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, where Army General Gordon Granger read aloud General Order No. 3, announcing the end of slavery in Texas, 2½ years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed.
