About the Eureka Stockade
|The original Eureka Flag|
It was one of the most significant events in Australia. It was a key event in the development of democracy in Australia.
Peter Lalor, the leader of the rebellion, later went on to become a member of parliament.
We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties!' The diggers' oath, 30 November 1854.
The term digger, went on to become the name used for Australian Soldiers, embodying the principles of mateship adapted by the "diggers" at the Eureka Stockade.
The mission is to link WikiTree profiles (or create them) for people known to be involved in the Eureka stockade, the diggers, politicians, soldiers, and tell their stories, and to research their family trees. Where did they come from? What brought them here?
This will also link with the Australian Cemeteries Project.
Please go to the the Eureka Rebellion participants if you have profiles to add.
