Kalahui Hawaii: Overthrow Remembered

Published: January 12, 2007, Author: AngelSupport

On January 16, 1893, United States diplomatic and military personnel conspired with a small group of individuals to overthrow the constitutional government of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

This action led to the subversion of the constitutional Government of Hawaii in the interests of annexation to the United States.
