Starting the 1890s, the US began to conquer Pacific Island nations for colonial reasons. The Hawaiian Kingdom was seized illegally. Guam was conquered in the Spanish-American War. Samoa was seized when the US stepped into the Samoan Civil War. Micronesia became a US territory and Pacific Islanders were exposed to atomic bomb testing. Three of these island nations remain US colonies today, two of them with limited rights to vote.
