Today’s ‘Timeline Tuesday’ takes us through the 1850s Kuleana Act, Smallpox Epidemic, death of Kamehameha III and growth in rice cultivation. We look at what was happening in Hawai‘i during this time period and what else was happening around the rest of the world.
A Comparative Timeline illustrates the events with images and short phrases. This helps us to get a better context on what was happening in Hawai‘i versus the rest of the world. I prepared these a few years ago for a planning project. (Ultimately, they never got used for the project, but I thought they might be on interest to others.)

Thankyou, very interesting
Love when you do this ! Really helps clarify ‘place in time’ for Hawaii’s history.
BTW: have you read “100 Years Of Healing” by Evelyn Cook? Apparently the smallpox epidemic was largely avoided on Kauai because Dr. James Smith (son of missionaries) managed- in 1853- to get almost all the people of Kauai and Niihau vaccinated.
