Description

On verso:
No. 204. THE GOVERNOR, S. B. DOLE, AT THE GATEWAY OF THE PALACE GROUNDS, HONOLULU.
The Hawaiian Islands, now an American territory, were discovered by Captain James Cook in 1778 and named the “Sandwich Islands.” The inhabitants were semi-civilized and had a kind of feudal state organization. In 1792 Vancouver brought them cattle and taught them shipbuilding. American fur traders furnished Kamehameha I of Hawaii, firearms, whereby he was enabled to conquer the other islands. His dynasty ended only when on July 4, 1894, Hawaii was declared a republic. American missionaries introduced Christianity about 1820, and in 1840 a constitution was granted. King Kalakaua, and after him his sister Liliuokalani attempted to restore heathenism and an absolute monarchy, but were defeated. The queen was dethroned in 1893 and the civilized element placed the islands under the protection of the United States. Sanford B. Dole was elected president of the new republic, which on August 12, 1898, became a part of the United States as a territory.
