Juneteenth Mammy enshrined by map of Texas.  Number 19 held up by her knife (reflect her seriousness).  Quilted table from quilts used by slaves to transmit hidden messages. 

Juneteenth, (Freedom Day or Emancipation Day), commemorates announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas in 1865.  Celebrated on June 18th/19th.  Linoln's Emancipation Proclamation of September 22, 1862, was effective on January 1, 1863.  Texas slaves were the last to hear of the proclamation.  Union General Gordon Granger and 2,000 federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, to take possession of the state and enforce the emancipation by Executive of the United States - General Order No. 3 - on June 18, 1865.
