Act of War - The Overthrow of the Hawaiian Nation
This hour-long documentary is a provocative look at a historical event of which few Americans are aware. In mid-January, 1893, armed troops from the U.S.S. Boston landed at Honolulu in support of a treasonous coup d'etat against the constitutional sovereign of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Queen Lili'uok alani. The event was described by U.S. President Grover Cleveland as "an act of war."
