The United States wanted to annex Hawaii because of its abundant natural resources and arable lands. They set up ports to export goods. (1) Effects Hawaiian government was a monarchy. Queen Lili'ukalani was the last monarch in 1892. The government was replaced with a provisional one. President Benjamin Harrison submitted a treaty for Hawaii to be annexed, but it was denied in 1897. Hawaiians were not happy about this and resulted in an armed revolt in 1895. Lili'ukalani was thrown into jail during the revolt. Even though many Hawaiians and some Americans were against annexation, Hawaii became an official territory of the U.S. in 1898. (4) Hawaii was valuable for its fertile soil. The main crop became sugar and it's one of the only U.S. states that produces coffee. Whaling also helped shape the economy and form seaport towns. (5 and 7) Summary I think Hawaii mostly benefited from imperialism. Sugar and other crops helped the economy. Western culture also gave Hawaiians written language. Annexation eventually led to Hawaii becoming a part of the U.S. There was little racism and enslavement. The only downfall to the imperialism of Hawaii was the decline in the population due to disease and other things brought by westerners.
