Today we observe Juneteenth, the federal holiday enacted to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Much of the holiday’s history originates in Texas, where Major General Gordon Granger proclaimed freedom for enslaved people June 19, 1865. To mark the day, horsemen and horsewomen in Texas gather each year for a decidedly horse-y affair. [Freedom Is a Horse]
