How many people are familiar with the Juneteenth Holiday started in Texas at the end of the Civil War?
I lived in Austin for 13 years so attended Juneteenth celebrations.
It would have been a good thing for Geni to commemorate. Similarly Cinco de Mayo. Those are both big days in Texas.
I got Betsy Ross on as Profile of the Day on Flag Day with an email to Mike Stangle...give it a whirl....
My vocal group, Sandra Welsh and the Unique Five, sang at a Juneteenth celebration on Friday, June 17th.
When is Flag Day?
It was last Tuesday, June 14th, Ken.
