It is June 19, 1865, also known as Juneteenth Day. General Granger comes to Galveston to enforce the freeing of all the slaves in Texas - two years after the end of the Civil War!
Imagine living 153 years ago and finding out that you can now make your own choices about your own life? Where would you go? Would you stay in Texas? How would you get a job? The Story of Juneteenth: An interactive History Adventure by Steven Otfinoski is part of the You Choose Books series and creates three different African American characters to follow in Texas as you choose their adventure after they find out about their freedom.
But, beware! Not every path will lead you to a happy ending. Traveling in Texas is still very dangerous and racial prejudice still exists in many places. Juneteenth is just the start of your historical journey. How will you make the story end?
