Thesis

The outcomes of Minister John Stevens, Benjamin Harrison, and McKinley has led to the Overthrow of the Kingdom on January 17, 1893.

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE

Three of these powerful men have assisted each other in the overthrow of Hawaii in 1893. Although the process of annexing and overthrowing the kingdom of Hawaii was immoral and inhumane, it led to a beneficial access for the United States and provided a stopping point of other countries around the world. Knowing who and what overthrew Hawaii has led to a great significance of the struggles that the locals and foreigners took to be able to bring forth a new-named land. Understanding the process of the overthrow has been made to help clarify on the process of many things that have led to this day of unification.

IS HAWAI'I LEGALLY AND LAWFULLY A STATE OF THE UNION

Hawaii isn't legally and lawfully a state of the United States because of the false information and thoughts of annexation. The McKinley statue located in McKinley High School holds a treaty that never did exist that supposedly annexed Hawaii to the U.S. It proves as a false monument because the treaty was never established and never passed through the senate.

COMMITTEE OF SAFETY

The 13-man organization greatly assissted in the Overthrow of Hawaii. With the help of Sanford B. Dole and Minister Stevens, they've been able to accomplish in the overthrow. The organization worked together with marines that were ordered by Stevens to threaten Queen Lili'uokalani to surrender. If she didn't obey their commands, Stevens and the rest of the foreigners stated that war will outbreak with the deicision of the Queen. To prevent war, she surrendered, but only to the United States; not the governement.

OPPOSING FLAGS

After the process of coup d'etat; overthrowing Queen Lili'uokalani and forcing her, the foreigners have removed not only her seat and power, but also the Hawaiian flag. Even doing so, the foreigners raised the American flag and have cut the Hawaiian flag into four pieces. As Blount have said, this action was completely immoral and illegal.
