Queen Liliuokalani's Letter of Protest to McKinley

Queen Liliuokalani's Letter of Protest to McKinley

It was President Mckinley who said the takeover of Hawaii would only be the result of Manifest Destiny. It was he that urged congress to annex Hawaii for economic interest, but also for military interest. On the seventh of July 1898, Hawaii was officially annexed to the United States following the signing of the Newlands Resolution by the president. The process of Hawaii’s annexation was long and tedious, however it was something that the American government knew needed to occur in order to keep it's foothold in the Pacific.
