Sugar Barons and the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom

Thesis

The active and inactive involvement of President Harrison, President Cleveland, and Minister John Stevens resulted in the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Historical Significance

The Overthrow of the Hawaii was from the active and inactive involvement of President Harrison, President Cleveland, and Minister John L. Stevens. This topic in particular is a very important part of our history because if this didn't happen then Hawaii today probably would have not been counted as a state. The long term significance of this whole thing would be that Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States. If we did not go through what we went through then Hawaii would have been probably different. The way we live in Hawaii today could have been taken away.

Is Hawaii Legally and Lawfully a State of The Union

In my honest opinion, I want to say yes and no. I want to say yes because Hawaii went through a lot to become a state. President William Mckinley signed the bill to have Hawaii as the 50th state. But, at the same time I want to say no because Hawaii went through a lot of bad things. Hawaii was kind of taken by war. It was by force.

Supplemental Information

In the photo below, it it one of the cover pages of The Honolulu Advertiser. It says "Congress Says YES!" which meant that congress agreed to sign Hawaii as the 50th State. Hawaii became the 50th state on August 21, 1959.
