In 1791, Kamehameha − a North Kobala native - united all the major islands and created one royal kingdom in 1810. The American colonists eventually overthrew the kingdom in 1898. During the 20th century, with the boom of the islands' sugar and pineapple economy, immigrants from all over the world began arriving. It was on August 21, 1959 that Hawaii became the youngest and 50th state of the US.
