Thesis

On the day January 17, 1893 Hawaii was overthrown. This illegal act could not be possible without these three men ; President Grover Cleveland, President William McKinley and United States Minister John L. Stevens

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE

On the day January 17, 1893 Hawaii was overthrown. This illegal act could not be possible without these three men; President Grover Cleveland, President William McKinley and United States Minister John L. Stevens. My topic is important in history because the overthrow of the Hawaiian Government was illegal and Hawaii will never return to its owners, the Hawaiians. The long term significance of the overthrow is that even though Hawaii was overthrown over 100 years ago many of the Hawaiian people don’t feel American because Hawaii was just taken from them.

IS HAWAII LEGALLY AND LAWFULLY A STATE OF THE UNION

My opinion now about the legality and lawfulness of Hawaii as a state, is that Hawaii should not be a state. Hawaii should not be a state because for Hawaii to be a state President McKinley needed the annexation treaty but it never got enough votes from congress so still to this day Hawaii is illegally a state
