Hawaiian Kingdom Overthrown

The Kingdom of Hawaii has been Overthrown.


January 17, 1893 was the day the Hawaiian kingdom was over thrown and this would not have been possible if it wasn’t for Pres. Harrison, Pres. Cleveland and Minister John Stevens.

Historical Significance


The Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom would not have been possible if it wasn't for the Presidents and the Minister. The Over throw of Hawaii is really important because if it wasn't for that Hawaii would not be a state today. The long term significance is it becomes a state and is allowed access to Americans.

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

Hawai’i is an amazing place to come and visit, but, was the Harbor and scenery worth it, putting the natives through all that suffering? I don’t believe it is legally and lawfully a state of the union only because we forced Hawai’i to sign the Annexation. How could something be forced upon someone be legal? I don’t believe America tried there best to have Hawai’i annexed properly.
