We will restore the power of Hawaii.
In the 1820's U.S ships began arriving in Hawaii bringing missionaries that wanted to convert Hawaiians to Christianity. Later the missionaries began to raise crops but sugarcane was the main one. The sugarcane crop became the main attraction to many different countries.
In 1874 Kalakaua became king in Hawaii. America had already gained control of Hawaii's land and economy. This infuriated him, so he promised to but Hawaii natives back in power.
We need to become part of the United States.
In 1875 the king agreed to a treaty that allowed sugar to enter the U.S tax-free. This made sugar cheaper than all of the other places. This boosted the Hawaiian sugar trade.
Hawaii is now the 50th state
In 1886 the American's wanted the port of the Pear Harbor in exchange for renewing the sugar treaty. The king was held at gunpoint to sign a new constitution called the Bayonet Constitution in 1887. The king, angrily, called it the bay constitution. It took powers away from the Hawaiians.
The U.S. revoked the sugar treaty in 1890 to support sugar producers in the U.S. mainland. The American sugar producers in Hawaii thought they had one option to protect the sugar business. This option was to become part of the United States.
In 1893 the end of the monarchy was declared because of the Queen Liliuokalani surrendering. The next thing that was being worked on was the annexation of Hawaii. Grover Cleveland didn't achieve it. In 1898 William McKinley achieved the annexation. In 1959 the 50th state was added (Hawaii).
