Eureka Stockade – The Unfinished RevolutionIn 1854, Victorian miners fought a deadly battle under the flag of the Southern Cross at the Eureka Stockade. Though brief and doomed to fail, the battle is legend in both our history and in the Australian mind. Henry Lawson wrote poems about it, its symbolic flag is still raised, and even the nineteenth – century visitor Mark Twain called it: ”a strike for liberty”.Was this rebellion a fledgling nation’s first attempt to assert its independence under colonial rule? Or was it merely rabble – rousing by unruly miners determined not to pay their taxes.
