Juneteenth celebrations at Alexandria's Freedom House, commemorate Emancipation coming to Texas after the Civil War. This photo album was given by the Freed People of Alexandria to President Abraham Lincoln shortly before his assassination.
The Freedom House Museum was once part of the headquarters for the largest domestic slave trading firm in the United States, Franklin and Armfield.
The display panels are shown to the local community in an attempt to identify unnamed people in album who may be their ancestors.
