On this day: David Kalakaua, monarch of Hawaii, was forced at gunpoint by Americans to sign the Bayonet Constitution http://t.co/zclQLtE1QD
An interesting historical note for those involved with the sovereignty movement. The "Bayonet Constitution" sealed the fate of the Hawaiian Monarchy and eventually paved the way for the removal of Queen Lili’uokalani in 1893. As pundits would say, "the rest is history." Aloha, Russ.
