Power Hungry Americans

Stealing the Land of Hawaiians

Thesis

Hawaiian Kingdom's Overthrow possible on January 17, 1893 because of Pres. Harrison, Pres. Cleveland, and Minister John Stevens.

Historical Significance

Hawaiian Kingdom's Overthrow possible on January 17, 1893 because of Pres. Harrison, Pres. Cleveland, and Minister John Stevens. This is important in history because it deals with the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom. What I want the people who read my project to learn from my project is that what these three Americans did to help the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom was hurtful and that it disgraced the Hawaiian people.

Is Hawai'i Legally and Lawfully a State of the Union

Hawai'i is not legally and lawfully a state of union. This is because in history books it says that there was a Treaty of Annexation that was signed by both the Hawaiians and Americans. The truth is that there was no Treaty of Annexation and that American forcefully took over Hawai’i without actually making a treaty.
