The Eureka Stockade, by Raffaello Carboni

The Eureka Stockade, by Raffaello Carboni

In December 1854 in Eureka, State of Victoria, rebellious miners who had made a stockade were defeated in battle by police and troops.

There was a Gold Rush.  The miners didn’t want to pay much per month for a mining license.  The author of the book linked to above was a pan miner there and writes about his perpspective on the Victoria State Gold Rush of 1851-1860.  He came over from Europe.
