The right to free the American slaves was effective January 1, 1862. Slaves in Texas were not freed until, June 19, 1865. The voyage of General Granger from Louisiana to Galveston, Texas to deliver the news of freedom took ten (10) days. 

Since the news of freedom of the slaves arrived in Texas 2 ½ years after other slaves were freed, the Corpus Christi Juneteenth Coalition organized the “Ten Days of Celebration of Emancipation” (June 9 – June 19)”.
