The Annexation of Hawaii

During January 17, 1893 the overthrow of Hawaiian Kingdom would not been possible if it was for President Harrison, President Cleveland, and Minister John Stevens.

Historical Significance

This is an important topic for history because Hawaiians loss there land from the United States. Even though they say that the land doesn't belong to the people, people belong to the land. Foreigners fight for Hawaii for the land and to live on here. The long term signifiance is that Hawaiians lost there land. Hawaii had to keep fighting but the U.S. was stronger so they had to give up Hawaii. I want the reader to take away from my project is that how Hawaii lost there land. How the Hawaiians didn't owned the land, and how Americans just took it from them.

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

After studying the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom, my opinion of the lagallity and lawfulness of Hawai'i as a state is that Hawaii is not legally a state of United States. Why because they were forced to give Hawaii and the Hawaiians couldn't do anything because they were un- armed. The hawaiians were set up by foreigners. Americans did there job for them and now the hawaiians are on the bottom so a lot of hawaiians were homeless and foreigners could own land. That wasn't fair so I think Hawaii is not a state of United States.
