Hawaii is annexed to the United States...
Item # 636618
July 8, 1898
THE NORTH AMERICAN, Philadelphia, July 8, 1898
* Annexation of Hawaii
* William McKinley
The top of the last column on the ftpg. has the historic report: "ANNEXATION ACT SIGNED" "President Puts His Name to the Hawaiian Resolutions" "Philadelphia To Take The News" "The Cruiser Has Been Ordered to Honolulu & Admiral Miller Will Hoist the Stars and Stripes Over Our New Possessions". The report takes two-thirds of a column.
The ftpg. also has many reports on the Spanish-American War, including a print of: "What Our Boys Are Facing At Santiago".
Even toning, minor margin wear, should be handled with care.
