The landscape here was nothing like what we'd seen on other parts of the island. Green lush rolling hills had us staring out our right side, while the North ...
... of Hawaii and had to surrender her throne in 1893. She died in 1917 at the age of 79.
Once again we see the aggressive influence of the USA. In 1893 a group of mostly wealthy white, rich American businessmen, backed by the US Marines, illegally overthrew the constitutional monarchy of Hawaii. In 1959 Hawaii became the 50th state of America. In 1993 President Clinton officially apologised for the ...
