First settled by Polynesians sailing from other Pacific islands between A.D. 300
and 600, Hawaii was visited in 1778 by British captain James Cook, who called
the group the Sandwich Islands.
Hawaii was a native kingdom throughout most of the 19th century, when the expansion of
the sugar industry (pineapple came after 1898) meant increasing U.S. business
and political involvement. In 1893, Queen Liliuokalani was deposed, and a year
later the Republic of Hawaii was established with Sanford B. Dole as president.
Following annexation (1898), Hawaii became a U.S. territory in 1900.
