First let’s take you to Honolulu which is one of the biggest cities and the capital of Hawaii. Honolulu has a lot of rich history; Honolulu's early history was one of turbulence and conflict. One of the last areas on the globe to be explored by Europeans, Hawaii was subject to strong pressures from many forces, including American missionaries, who arrived in 1820, and opportunistic whalers. These whalers were among those who built Honolulu originally, bringing trade, commerce, and prosperity that led to expansion into the sugar and pineapple industries.
As early as 1814, Russia tried to move in, and Russian soldiers built a bastion at the harbor's edge. The British flag was raised in 1843 and French forces occupied Honolulu in 1849. Each time control was returned to the independent native kingdom
