The 28th of November.
On that day, the soldiers of Honolulu drilled about Kulaokahua, both Hawaiian and haole soliders, hundreds of them. The King and Queen went and inspected the troops; many of the officers from the British, American, and French warships came. They admired the drilling.
On the night, the Hawaiian alii and the haole ones, as well as all of the prestigious people came to the Palace to see the King and the alii.
On the 28th of Nov., the nations of Britain and France acknowledged the independence of this Hawaiian Nation, and that is the reason for the celebration on this day.
