Historical Significance

The Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom on January 17, 1893 would not have been possible without the role of President William McKinley, President Grover Cleveland and Minister John Stevens played.

This topic is important in history because everyone should know what happened back in the days. From the annexation, to the over throw, to Pearl Harbor. So many things happened back in the days with the Hawaiian Kingdom. And it shares how Hawaii is the way it is now. With all the important people being apart of the hawaiian Kingdom.

The long term significance was that the overthrow effected the way Hawaii is now. It made all the roles of the important people and without it to happen, who could know what Hawaii could actually be like today. The overthrow, the annexation, Pearl Harbor, all the presidents, queen, kings, effected the way Hawaii is right now.

Supplemental Information

This was the Hawiian Kingdom when the overthrow, annexation, and war was happening.


1893 in the Hawaiian Islands, in which anti-monarchical insurgents within the Kingdom of Hawaii composed largely of United States citizens, engineered the overthrow of its native monarch, Queen Liliuokalani Hawaii was initially reconstituted as an independent republic, but the ultimate goal of the revolutionaries was the annexation of the islands to the United States, which was finally accomplished in 1898.

Is Hawaii legally and lawfully a state of the union?

Hawaii is not legally and lawfully a state of the union because Hawaii is a sovereign and independent nation. It was an annexed territory, to state, was done in violation of laws and treaties then in effect, without regard to the wishes of the Hawaiian people that lived in Hawaii.
