Summary The Eureka Stockade... In 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. In his inimitable style, Peter FitzSimons brings to life Australian legends on both sides of the rebellion
