Questions In The Census

(Territory 1900.  Statehood 1959)

Discovered in 1778 by Captain Cook, who named the island chain - The Sandwich Islands, it was ruled by natives Monarchs.  From 1893-1898 it was known as The Republic of Hawaii.  Ceded to the United States in 1898, it was known as Hawaii Territory in 1900 and achieved statehood in 1959.  Your webmaster lived in Hawaii for 2 years and I have to say, it is the most beautiful place I have ever been.  Your wildest dreams could not reproduce the beauty of the beaches and lands in the Kingdom of Hawaii.
