The Overthrow

THE HAWAIIAN KINGDOM COMES TO AN END

THESIS

The overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii refers to the coup d’état that took place on January 17, 1893 in the Hawaiian Islands. The overthrow wouldn’t have been possible without the role Pres. McKinley, Pres. Grover Cleveland and Minister John L. Stevens played.

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE

The overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom on January 17, 1893 would not have been possible without the role Pres. Harrison, Pres Cleveland and Minister John Stevens played. This topic is important in history because many people think that Hawaii is legitimate state, when it was stolen by U.S for strategic point. I want the reader to know that Hawaii is not legally and lawfully a state of Union.

IS HAWAII LEGALLY AND LAWFULLY A STATE OF UNION

After studying the Overthrow of Hawaiian Kingdom, it changed my thoughts about the legality and lawfulness of Hawaii as a state. In my opinion Hawaii is not a legitimate state because the U.S invaded Hawaii and if the government of Hawaii had not been illegally overthrown in 1893 by the U.S. Marines through act of Manifest Destiny and American-style gunboat diplomacy, Hawaii would still be an independent, sovereign nation today.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

The video tells you that not all Hawaiians support the sovereignty movement. Moreover, those who do support it like to ignore the fact that the monarchy whose overthrow they complain about was it "illegally" created. They said in the video that they are not American and they will die as Hawaiians.
