My Daily Views on the World!


141 Years




June 19 th marks the official date of the Emancipation of Slavery in the United States. Although President Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 it took over two years before Southern states received the news that slavery had been abolished. Texas, still operating under a system of slavery was the last state to hear of the news and two and a half years later declared their slaves free on June 19 th 1865. Please note that The Emancipation Proclamation did not apply to states that withdrew from the Union as well as Union territories. The Emancipation Proclamation did not apply to any state that was under the Confederacy.

141 years, isn't really that long! Know your HIStory, so you can go full force with your future!
