I just noticed in on my calendar too and looked it up earlier today. Not recognized in PA. You would think it would be made into a more significant day. Maybe not June 19th but some day during the year.

Didn't get nothing interesting. Is it that they finally let the slaves go or something, IDK. I'm google retarded!

Yep - "Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

From its Galveston, Texas origin in 1865, the observance of June 19th as the African American Emancipation Day." Been around for 143 years???
