hawaii is about to change


In 1893 of January on the 17th the overthrow happen, and would not have been achievable without the roles played by minister John L. Stevens and two presidents by the name of Stephen Grover Cleveland and William McKinley.

Historical Significance

This so important till this day in rememberance of the history and the background information of Hawaii, who was the monarchs in each term, and how it became a part of the United States of America. One of the important significance of the hawaiian overthrow and annexation was the "signed petition against the annexation." The petition was a treaty of the forced native Hawaiians to sign so America will be able to take over the hawaiian islands.

Is hawaii legally and lawfully a state of the union?

In my opinion i feel the it is unfair that America could just come a force the Hawaiian kingdom, native Hawaiians, and the monarchs at the time to make them to do what they told them to do, because Hawaii is so small that America just bullied the little islands with thier strength and power.
