juneteenth:a day to celebrate

#Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

Cogito Ergo Sum I am a young man with plenty of determination and motivation. After high school in my village, I decided to move to the university of law in Sassari. After two years, I realized that it was not for me, and I went to London to improve my English and make a new job and life experience. It was great working in the best hotels and restaurants in Central London (Mayfair and Knightsbridge ). I started reading a lot making myself curious about the World and the People. Journalism, soon became my passion for sharing my idea and knowledge to the most famous and richest customers in London. I come back to Italy to spread my knowledge to my family and friends. For the next future, I see my self successful Blogging and in Hospitality with the passion of theatre. I hope to meet all of you, signing an autograph and shaking hands-off in a sign of respect. All the best of luck Yours, Fabio
