The Illegal Overthrow of Hawaii


The Overthrow of the Hawaii Kingdom happened on January 17, 1893. President William Mickinley, President Grover Cleveland, and Minister John L. Stevens played a big role in the overthrow that made it possible.


President Mickinley, President Cleveland, and Minister Stevens played a big role in the overthrow to make it possible. This topic is important to history because of what happened to Hawaii during this time was illegal and immoral, the overthrow and annexation still happened and that's what made Hawaii part of the United States. I want the readers to know from my project that in the past, Hawaii and the Hawaiians were taken advantage of and treated less then Americans. They thought they could do whatever they want and got it their way. I want them to support Hawaii and share how this was unfair.

Is Hawaii Legally and Lawfully a State of The Union

Most folks have heard that Hawaii is a state, one of the United States of America. Most people, including those who live in Hawaii, accept that statement as a fact. The truth is that each and every step along Hawaii's path from sovereign and independent nation, to annexed territory, to state, was done in violent was and treaties, without the wishes of the Hawaiian people. Many people, including President Grover Cleveland, opposed the annexation of Hawaii. It is I'legally a part of the union because Hawaii got forced to sign unlawfully treaties. Hawaii shouldn't have been apart of the U.S. but they ended up becoming the 50th State.
