Can’t speak for you but I grew up all around the country and was consistently taught that the emancipation proclamation freed all enslaved people. Never learned that people were being enslaved against the Legends Were Born In August 1994 27th Birthday T-Shirt for two years later. Hence never hearing about Juneteenth outside of my own family.or a while it was mostly just a Texas thing, which makes sense because it’s the day Texas slaves found out they were free. The trend of recognizing it nationwide seems to be very recent, and I think it’s just because there’s demand for an “end to slavery” holiday and that’s the only one anyone had.
Best Legends Were Born In August 1994 27th Birthday T-Shirt
The Emancipation Proclamation was an Executive Order targeted at States in rebellion. It didn’t apply to the Legends Were Born In August 1994 27th Birthday T-Shirt (Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, Missouri), because the Union was not in a position in 1862 to handle even more secessions, and it wasn’t even clear if it was legal for the President to do that anyway. In the context of using it against Rebel States it could be seen as an insurrection suppression method which would go over better in front of a Federal judge. The States in rebellion weren’t going to bring a case anyway as they didnt consider themselves part of the United States. Slavery remained in Delaware and Kentucky after June 19th, 1865 until the ratification of the 13th Amendment in December of that year. There was also the practical problem that the people it was targeted at were violently rebelling against the Federal Government of the United States, and had formed their own country. Their reaction was “go fuck yourself.” What the Emancipation Proclamation did was give the Union Army a legal basis to free the slaves they encountered, authority they didn’t carry earlier in the war. Earlier on, some Union commanders would seize Slaves as contraband making them property of the US Army, and then freed them that way. The Emancipation Proclamation was more uniform, and came from the top as policy rather than lower level commander ad hoc decision making.
From there the 5 “Civilized Tribes”(Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, Seminole) owned slaves, and considered themselves independent nations not bound by the US Constitution. The Cherokee issued their own version of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, but the other 4 continued to engage in chattel slavery into 1866. This ultimately ended via Treaty between the US Government and the other 4 tribes.
