Summary
"When I was at school, the story of the Eureka Stockade went like this: a bunch of miners in blue shirts fought a bunch of soldiers in red coats because of unfair taxes. Blood stained the wattle, men got the vote and out of all this democracy was born. They were all men, of course. That went without saying.' But they weren't all men. There was . . . Poet ELLEN YOUNG, stirring up the miners with her letters to he paper; Newspaper editor CLARA DUVAL SEEKAMP, publishing them; Actor SARAH HANMER, raising money for the cause; Teacher ANASTASIA HAYES and the other women who sewed the Eureka flag . . . not to mention the unknown woman who was killed in the fighting, then completely forgotten for 150 years. This is their story, and the story of the thousands of men, women and children who risked everything to travel to the goldfields. They were the rebels. And, as historian Clare Wright shows in electrifying detail, their story is our story too."--Back cover
