Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. This  Holiday Commemorates June 19, 1865 when the last of enslaved people heard they were free. It is a US Federal  Holiday. 

The August Ball commemorates the August 1, 1887 Emancipation Day celebrating the liberation of enslaved  people, first in the Caribbean, and then eventually the end of slavery in this country. This Ball has historic roots in its past celebration in the La Crosse community.
