On January 16, 1893, four boatloads of United States Marines armed with
Gatling guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition came ashore in Honolulu,
capital of the independent Kingdom of Hawaii. As the Royal Hawaiian band played a
concert at the Hawaiian Hotel, 162 troops marched through the streets of Honolulu,
heading for the palace. The Queen of Hawaii, Lili'uokalani, looked down from her balcony
as the troops took up their positions. The following day, she surrendered at gunpoint,
yielding her throne to the government of the United States. A provisional government
led by wealthy white sugar growers assumed control of Hawaii and petitioned the
US for annexation.If copyright becomes an issue on this video upload, it will be deleted
