Hawaii Information[edit | edit source]

Hawai'i became the fiftieth state admitted to the United States on August 21, 1959. It is located in the Pacific Ocean west of the United States.[1] Hawai'i was created from what was the sovereign nation Kingdom of Hawai'i from 1810-1893, and independent republic Hawai'i from 1894-12 Aug 1898 when it became a U. S. Territory until being admitted to the United States in 1959. Honolulu is the capital and there are five counties. [2]
