On August 21, 1959, President Eisenhower undersigned the Statehood Proclamation, which signified that Hawaii was accredited to be the United States' fiftieth country.

I' m lying in my wonderful Oahu Condo right now and I' m feeling like in a secluded paradise without caring in the whole wide oceans because I' m sure I' m in the United States.
