A Pocket Guide to the Battle of Nu‘uanu 1795 Product Description:

Perfect for armchair historians, military enthusiasts, kama‘aina, and visitors eager to learn more about Hawai‘i’s indepth history and role in America’s landscape, A Pocket Guide to the Battle of Nu‘uanu 1795 is designed specifically for such a diverse audience with an equally diverse range of interests. Toward the end of April 1795, a great battle was fought on the Island of O‘ahu between the forces of Kalaniküpule and Kamehameha.

Named for the storied valley in which combined O‘ahu and allied forces made a valiant last stand against an invading army from Hawai‘i, the battle of Nu‘uanu was unquestionably a formative event in the history of these islands. No less, perhaps, in the historical development of this nation. If Nu‘uanu had not turned out as it did, Hawai‘i might never have been brought into permanent union and the archipelago advanced along very different lines.
