Hawaii has, and always will have, a special place in my heart. It might seem strange to someone who loves history and is excited about moving from California to Michigan because there will be more, older history. But despite its reputation as a tropical paradise, Hawaii has a fascinating and heartbreaking history of its own.
What follows are some really beautiful images of Hawaiian royals in the 1860s (and earlier), including the picture I've settled on for re-doing my teen sheer. Enjoy!
