Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom

Thesis

The Overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom on January 17, 1893 would not have been possible without the role Pres. Harrison, Pres. McKinley, and Pre. Cleveland played.

Historical Significance

The overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom would not been possible without the role press. Mckinley, Pres. Harrison, and pres. grover. This is an important topic to know in history because Hawaii is a part of the U.S. The americans only made Hawaii a state for military purposes.

Is Hawaii legally and lawfully a state of the union?

Yes, Hawaii is legally and lawfully a state but the americans forced it to become a state. They forced Queen Liliuokalani to sign the document and they took Hawaii over. It wasn't right for them to take something that wasn't theirs but Hawaii couldn't do anything about it but protest because they had no army.
