"Liliuokalani Gardens Footbridge"
Queen Liliuokalani was Hawaii's last reigning monarch. When she tried to restore the veto power to the monarchy and voting rights to economically disenfranchised native Hawaiians and Asians, the Queen was deposed on 17 January 1893 and "temporarily" relinquished her throne to "the superior military forces of the United States". She had hoped the United States, like Great Britain earlier in Hawaiian history, would restore Hawaii's sovereignty to the rightful holder but it was not to be. When I was in Honolulu this week in 2003 Iolani Palace was draped in black bunting in commemoration. Liliuokalani Gardens is in Hilo.
