The Hawaiian Kingdom

Being Forced to Die

Thesis

The Hawaiian Kingdom would have never been overthrown without President Harrison, President Cleveland and Minister John Stevens involvement.

Historical Significance

The Hawaiian Kingdom would have never been overthrown without President Harrison, President Cleveland and Minister John Stevens involvement. This topic is very important in history, especially in Hawaiians history because it shows how the Hawaiian Kingdom was overthrown and becoming part of the United State's territory. It marks the day in history when the independence of the Hawaiian Kingdom was no longer independent. That's why this topic is important in history. A long term significance would be that the Hawaii was once independent and isolated themselves with the outside world, but now Hawaii is very involved because they were overthrown from a Union that they were forced to be with when many of them didn't want to be a part of it.

Is Hawai'i Illegally and Lawfully A State of the Union?

Hawaii is not legally and lawfully a state of the union because once again, they were forced to rather than having both countries talk and settle an agreement. Queen Liliuokalani surrendered the Hawaiian Kingdom because the Americans threatened to kill the Hawaiians if she didn't. That is why I think Hawaii is not legally and lawfully a state of the Union.
