The official emancipation of slaves on this date, June 19 1885, came just over 100 years after America declared independence from Britain, in which our nation vowed to ensure that all its citizens were "equally free and independent"! Why did it take so long for slaves to be freed?

And then it took another 135 years before we acknowledged and recognized this SECOND day of Independence for citizens of our country?
