Juneteenth Researchers Incorrect About Slaves in Texas Â– They Knew Before June 19, 1865
, October 30, 2021 ) October 29, 2021 – Denver, CO and Columbia, SC – Wally G. Vaughn’s new book,
Slaves in Texas
– They Knew Before June 19, 1865, asserts that slaves in Texas knew of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. It was old news on June 19, 1865, and not new information as claimed by Juneteenth proponents. The book has been published by Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service
and book marketing company.
The claim of Juneteenth proponents is that the
slave community in Texas
first heard of the Emancipation Proclamation on June 19, 1865, two and a half years after it became effective, when Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and published General Orders, No. 3. Union Army and Union Navy records, as well as Confederate Army and Confederate Navy records, confirm the slave population in Texas knew of the Emancipation Proclamation in January 1863.
On January 21, 1863, there was a fight between Union and Confederate vessels off Sabine Pass, Texas. Confederate forces captured the schooner Velocity and the ship Morning Light. The U.S.S. Morning Light had twenty-nine individuals on board who had escaped from slave owners in Texas under the Emancipation Proclamation. Ten of the runaway slaves had enlisted in the United States Navy and were crew members. Union Navy and Confederate Navy reports were in harmony regarding the fight, vessels seized, and persons captured.
Ten runaway slaves from Galveston accessed the U.S.S. Katahdin between August 17-19, 1863. The ship was part of the Union Navy fleet in Galveston Bay. Upwards of thirty runaway slaves had enlisted in the Twenty-sixth Regiment, Corps d’Afrique, as of December 2, 1863, according to a United States Army communication from Brownsville, Texas, to Headquarters Department of the Gulf, New Orleans, Louisiana.
Author Wally G. Vaughn shows readers the questionable methodology Juneteenth researchers employed that allowed these historical encounters and other critical information to escape them and arrive at an erroneous conclusion, assigning to June 19, 1865, a notoriety unsubstantiated in historical records, military and civilian.
