I hear calls for making June 19th a national holiday. Seems rather odd to me to take something local to Texas and turn it national. How about instead, we use September 22nd? I think we should celebrate when we drew a line in the sand telling Democrats they had to give up their slaves. Could also do December 6th. What say you?
(In case you’re not aware, September 22nd was Emancipation Proclamation and December 6th was the 13th Amendment being ratified)
