A genral named Gordon Granger marched to Texas with a militia to forcefuly make southerners give up their slaves. A day called Juneteenth is a celebration of the day that the Emancipation Proclamation was passed and all slaves were free. During Juneteenth, people would play music and dance. It is supposed to be a celebration. After slaves were free, they had nothing to do, they couldn't get work, they couldn't afford food, and they had no shelter. To fix this problem, the constitution decided to make a thing called Freedmans Bureau. It was a funding organization that gave free slaves jobs, food and clothing, cared for the sick, old, and poor, made schools, and provided shelter.
