lehua for 34 points


In 1778, British explorer James Cook landed on Hawaii, which later attracted international trade — and international diseases — to the Hawaiian islands, which ultimately led Queen Liliʻuokalani of the Hawaiian Kingdom to be overthrown in the year 1883, which ultimately allowed U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower to admit Hawaii as the 50th U.S. state in March 1959. Because of these things, I was able to play the word “lehua” as valid word in a Scrabble-like game for 34 points.
