Historical Significance

On January 17, 1893, the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom would not have been possible without the help of President Grover Cleveland, Minister John L. Stevens and President William McKinley. This topic is important in history because it made an impact on the Hawaiians. Hawaii was a home to them and it was pretty much invaded. But I think if this situation of the Annexation of Hawaii wasn't going to happen, then we wouldn't have learned much things that the foreigners and missionaries came to teach us.

Is Hawaii legally and lawfully a state of the union?

After studying the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom, my opinion about Hawaii being legally and lawfully of the state is that I think it's good. I say this because if it wasn't for them to annex Hawaii, we wouldn't have been a stronger and dominate state. I believe that they had a good reason to annex Hawaii and Overthrow the kingdom, not only to take away our independence and freedom as a state.

This picture shows the Ku'e Petition. This is the paper of document where those who doesn't want Hawaii to be Annexed. It was not only signed from Oahu but also signed throughout the 7 other islands of Hawaii. This petition was a document to show the U.S that they are better off alone and don't need to be under anyone's territory. Hawaii is an independent state which makes them want to encourage the U.S to not take them in.
