WELCOME TO

THE APEX MUSEUM

HAPPY JUNETEENTH!

On January 1, 1863, Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. However, the Civil War, which continued prevented it being enforced in much of the Southern States until months or even years later. Emancipation Day also known as Juneteenth, is a celebration to mark the country-wide recognition of the decree set on June 19, 1865, when an estimated 250,000 enslaved people were finally declared free in Texas — the last state in the US to be reached by the Union Army, commanded by General Gordon Granger, who was accompanied by two transports of colored troops. Although Granger did not read out the Emancipation Proclamation itself on that day in Galveston, he did read out loud...


"General Order No. 3", which began:

"The people of Texas are informed that following a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection therefore existing between them becomes that between employer and free laborer."
