After a decade or so, western Samoa was ceded to the Germans, eastern Samoa to the Americans, and the British - happy with German renunciation of claims to Tonga, the Solomons and Niue - hopped in their sturdy ships and went home.

In a series of referenda, American Samoans voted to continue under the direction of appointed governors, however after a little coercion from Washington, locals determined that they were ready for democratically elected leadership and some level of autonomy.
