    Here is a brief description of the "annexation" of Hawaii. "In January 1893, Hawaiian planters staged an uprising to overthrow the Queen. At the same time, they appealed to the United States armed forces for protection. Without Presidential approval, marines stormed the islands, and the American minister to the islands raised the stars and stripes in Honolulu. The Queen was forced to abdicate, and the matter was left for Washington politicians to settle. By this time, Grover Cleveland had been inaugurated President. Cleveland was an outspoken anti-imperialist and thought Americans had acted shamefully in Hawaii. He withdrew the annexation treaty from the Senate and ordered an investigation into potential wrongdoings. Cleveland aimed to restore Liliuokalani to her throne, but American public sentiment strongly favored annexation."

    Each of the purchases or acquisitions shown on the map have fascinating histories. One of my favorite is the Louisiana Purchase and the subsequent exploration by Lewis and Clark. You can read a great account of the exploration of this land in the book "Undaunted Courage". Can you imagine the journey that this exploration party experienced? It must have been amazing!
