Historical Significance

The overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom on January 17, 1893 would not have been made possible with out the roles of the Small group of white mostly American men, Queen Lili'uokalani, and Stanford B. Dole being present. This topic is actually really important in history because it tells the story of how the Hawaiians were living all peacefully and nice until the Americans robbed them of their land and rights, then tried to lend them a "helping hand" by giving them a few things but then killing their monarchy. Then illegally taking Hawaii under the Unites States. What I want my readers and such to take from this flyer project is to shed a new light upon the so called "50th state" and really just open their eyes on what really happened, they say ignorance is a bliss, but this is something that should be known for those still in school and taking a history class.

Is Hawaii Legally and Lawfully a State of the Union?

After taking this class twice now and studying about the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom and learning about all these different things about how the overthrow actually took place, how it is said to be illegal, I can say that even through everything that the Hawaiians had to experience and go through, it might have been a better choice for both sides of the spectrum. Although the Hawaiians were practically robbed of almost everything, in the end we are still here now and still sorta alive and breathing. It was wrong of the United States to do such things, but they were seeking to expand and gain things from it. If the Kingdom was still here, how would it have been economically, socially, and politically? If Hawaii had to survive as its own nation, I personally do not see it going to far.

In the Eyes of the Expansionists

The picture below portrays the Expansionist's; people who support the idea of branching out and expanding their borders; perspective on what their motive is when they expand. By continuing to expand the country Uncle Sam continues to grow fatter meaning that the country gets bigger both proportion wise and value wise. As we continue to expand, we obtain more valuable resources from those who we annex in exchange that we care for that area and make it apart of the family. As the United States continues the grow more valuable, we attract more attention to those who want to become our allies. the more allies we gain in the long run, the more safe we become. If we were put into a situation where America is in danger, we will have the support of many allies because we become a necessity to them due to our abundance of resources that other nations need.
