EVIL ACT UPON A NATIONS HAND

A Nation That Was Pushed Into The Darkness Lost and Confuse

THESIS

The overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom on January 17, 1893 would not have been possible with the role of President William McKinley, President Grover Cleveland, and Minister John Stevens.

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 L. Stevens played. This topic is very important to history because no nation would want to be controlled by another nation. For example, when the Missionaries came to the Hawaiian Kingdom civilizing the Hawaiians, taking away their culture and beliefs. The Hawaiians didn't want their culture and beliefs to be taken away from them just like the U.S., they wouldn't want to give up any U.S. territory to any nations. Also History shouldn't repeat itself, this could be a lesson to all the nation that still wants to be on top of the word. I want the reader to understand that the annexation of the Hawaiian Kingdom was not legal because there was no treaty of annexation brought from President William McKinley. Also, the annexation was a devastating act from the committee of safety because it wasn't for John L. Stevens Queen Lilioukalani would've not surrender.

IS HAWAI'I LEGALLY AND LAWFULLY A STATE OF THE UNION

Hawaii not legally and lawfully a state of the union because there was not treaty of annexation from President William McKinley. Without a treaty of annexation it's not possible to annex a country in your country. Therefore, the Hawaiian Kingdom is not legally and lawfully a state of the union.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

The Queen was arrested January 16, 1895 on the second story of ‘Iolani Palce. She was guarded day and night, and no visitors were allowed.
