[ARCHIVED] Township Recognizes Juneteenth


Township offices will be closed Monday, June 20, in recognition of the Juneteenth holiday.  Juneteenth is also known as a second Independence Day in our Nation’s History and commemorates the date in 1865 when union troops arrived in Galveston Bay and announced that enslaved people were free. Despite the fact that the Emancipation Proclamation and 13th Amendment, which freed all slaves, was passed in 1863, it could not be implemented in places still under Confederate control.
