Conclusion

On January 17, 1893 the overthrow was possible because of the actions of President William Mckinley, President Grover Cleveland and Minister John L. Stevens. This topic in important in Hawaiian history because without the annexation, Hawaii might not have gotten some of the things that we have today. Things such as Netflix and free education. The long term significance is that we are protected by the United States constitution. We wouldn`t have free education, freedom of speech and all the other rights we as human beings have.

Is Hawaii a legally a state?

Hawaii isn’t a state of the United States legally. In order for a place to become a state they must take a vote on it. After that, there must be a treaty of annexation signed by both places. When they annexed Hawaii to the United States, they never did sign a treaty, they just took a vote and decided Hawaii was a part of the United States.

Supplemental Information

Iolani Palace was the home of Queen Liliuokalani. When the overthrow took place, she was put under house arrest. She was not allowed to have communications to the outside world. She was updated on everything because Hawaiians sent her flowers wrapped in newspaper written in Hawaiian.
