Britain wasn't able to take control of Africa but they were able to take control of India and Nigeria.

Hawaii vs. United States
In 1898, the Spanish-American war occurred due to an explosion from the U.S.S Maine. This changed a lot in history. When this occurred, it made the annexation of Hawaii pass. 46 senators had declined this until everything changed. The Hawaiians were mad and made petitions until the US took control over them. "The Hawaiian Islands remained a U.S. territory until 1959, where they became a state, the 50th state. The petition against the annexation is proof of how the people of Hawaii felt about the annexation. Everything changed when the U.S.S. Maine exploded and the U.S. entered the Spanish-American War."
