In the 1800's Australia was a continent divided into 6 colonies with it's own laws and armys
In 1889 Henry Parks wanted to make Australia a single country!!! :D
Also known as FEDERATION
It doesn't work for everyone!
no no no no
Time passed and people kept fighting for the cause of Federation.
Including Alfred Deakin, who was part of a new generation and thought the continent should be a united country and eventually helped to convinced the colonies to give it another shot
SA gave women the right to vote and wanted the whole country to have that right
WOMEN CAN VOTE, YEAH!!!
Eventually a new Constitution was written and most colonies let their people vote if they wanted in or out
In 1899 all colonies, except WA, said YES
WA joined a year later
In 1901 in Sydney Centennial Park the Commonwealth of Australia was proclaimed a FEDERATION
First Prime Minister Edmund Barton help to write the new Constitution
Sadly the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were not included in the Constitution, and the new governor made it harder for people that were not European to immigrate to AUS...
...but a major point in Australia history.
