June, the country’s second Independence Day, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States and comes nearly three years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

Last year, President Joe Biden signed into law a law that officially recognizes June 10 as a federal holiday.

The federal holiday commemorates the day over a quarter of a million enslaved blacks learned of their freedom after Major General Gordon Granger and an estimated 2,000 Union soldiers arrived in Galveston Bay, Texas June 19, 1865

June 10 is the first federal holiday established since Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 1983.

June 19 falls on Sunday, June 19, but this year it will be celebrated on Monday, June 20 in many places.

Here’s a look at what will be closed due to compliance June 16:

All non-essential federal government buildings and offices will be closed on Monday.

Many public and private schools will also be closed, but be sure to check your local school calendar.

US stock markets will closed Monday including New York Stock Exchange as well as Nasdaq.

USPS will close June 20th.

Most major restaurants, as well as retail, chain and grocery stores, will remain open.

Companies such as Target, Best Buy as well as Nike made June a holiday.
