The Illegal Hawaiian Government

American Leaders who supported the provisional government

Thesis

The contributions of Minister John L. Stevens, President Grover Cleveland, President William McKinley towards the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom on January 17,1893.

Significance of the Overthrow

The effect that the leaders John L. Stevens, President Grover Cleveland, President William McKinley left on the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom on January 17, 1983. This topic is important in history because this is when, how, and why Hawaii became U.S. territory. It also demonstrates how controlling and unjustful America can be. It shows what kind of power the Hawaiian people had. I want you to realize how unfair Hawaii was being treated at that time. I want you remember how we all got here, on this island, controlled by U.S. government.

How legit and lawful was the annexation of Hawaii to the U.S.?

The annexation of Hawaii to the U.S. was the most unlawful and cruel thing someone has done. U.S. took away every right of a Hawaiian just for personal gain. The Hawaiian government was broken because of the dreadful Americans.
