Go To Post June 19, 1865, Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation saying ALL Americans were declared free. This day became the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States.
We are thrilled our government is now recognizing how important this date is, by making it a national holiday. We love reasons to celebrate and this is such a worthy one. A day to reflect on the scars that have been inflicted and the actions we can take to heal more deeply than ever before. How glorious is that?
