Hawaii, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Cuba.

Photographic excerpts from the two-volume work,- Our islands and their people as seen with camera and pencil by José de Olivares. Hawaii, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Cuba.

Under William McKinley, Jr., 25th President of the United States, led the United States in 1898 war against Spain, with US intervention in Cuba, the Philippines and Puerto Rico. Especially Hawaii’s strategic location for the US warfare in the Philippines made it more important for America’s interests. On July 7, 1898 McKinley signed the Newlands Resolution which was named after the deputies Francis G. Newlands, with the United States Hawaii officially annexed. A solemn ceremony was held on the steps of Iolani Palace where the Hawaiian Flag drafted and the American flag was hoisted. Dole became the first territorial governor of Hawaii.
