Following its early years as a kingdom, then a territory, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill on March 18, 1959, which allowed for Hawaii to become a state. Hawaii formally became the 50th state of the Union on August 21, 1959. A year of commemorative events will take place throughout the state in 2009.
