SLAVERY ENDS IN TEXAS
Yesterday a large Union force commanded by General Gordon Granger arrived in Texas to free all slaves. So far it has been very successful, slaves are reacting to the news by celebrating and reuniting with their family's. This historic date is now know as Juneteenth. Also a new organization know as the Freedman Bureau has started helping freemen by giving them food, water, shelter, and education.
THE NEW GOVERNOR
President Johnson has appointed a new governor for our state. Andrew J Hamilton, he is a unionist and a republican. What this means for our state? That's for you to decide. A convention recently met to discuss a new constitution for Texas. The convention was made mostly of ex-confederate supporters and democrats. In my eyes this convention isn't going to get anything done without a non bias group of people.
