Hawaiian Star’s coverage of the protest rally of July 2, 1894.

One thought on “Hawaiian Star’s coverage of the protest rally of July 2, 1894.

  1. DeSoto says:

    The Republic of Hawaii was proclaimed by Sanford B. Dole on the steps of Iolani Palace (then renamed the Executive Building) on July 4, 1894. Need one point out the symbolism of that date for this event to take place? Or the choice of location to stage it? The intention of eventual annexation was clearly at work.
