I can't believe it! Why can't we just be our own country??
In 1898 the Spanish-American war ended after the Treaty of Paris was signed. This meant that the philippines was no longer under the rule of the spaniards but the americans
The revolution must stay strong to keep fighting
Emilio, what are we going to do?
Just two days after the Treaty of Paris was signed Filipino nationalists and American forces clashed starting the Philippine-American war.
We must gather up our people and troops to fight back against the Americans. The philippines WILL be independent
The Philippine-American war lasted 3 years. An estimated 4,200 americans died and over 20,000 filipinos died. During the time famine and disease spread across the country killing more that 200,000 Filipinos.
we wouldn't have this problem of Hawaii was a part of America
During the late 1800's many americans had made their way to Hawaii on order to grow sugar. However, many weren't making enough profit due to high import rates to the states
The farmers went to Queen Liliuokalani to propose their argument but the Queen thought that the foreigners were the cause of all the problems
No. We must preserve Hawaii and remain independent
Listen here Queen if we just become part of the u.s everything will be fine
i have failed my people
Angry that the Queen refused, the planters planned to overthrow the Queen. They even requested help from the us marines who came and stormed the islands forcing the Queen to step down from her throne
