On April 19, 1866, African Americans staged a huge celebration of the fourth anniversary of the District of Columbia's Emancipation Act. Approximately 5,000 people marched up Pennsylvania Avenue, past 10,000 cheering spectators, for religious services and speeches by prominent politicians. Two of the black Civil War regiments led the procession.
