Ka Buke Moʻolelo o Honorable Robert William Wilikoki (The Biography of the Honorable Robert William Wilcox)

On July 30, 1889, Robert W. Wilcox mounted a failed attempt to overthrow the Cabinet of the time, and return to the throne powers that had been diminished through the “Bayonet Constitution” of 1887, which had stripped the Hawaiian monarchy of its power. This is the account of that one-day battle, of the legal trials that followed, and of the man who led the only armed rebellion during the Hawaiian monarchy.
