In the 1800's in Australia tonnes of gold was found causing a gold rush attracting people from all over the globe.
The people who mined the gold were called diggers, to be a digger these people needed special licenses but a lot of diggers could not afford licenses so they were locked up and punished.
This caused the Eureka rebellion between the diggers and authorities, so one night over 10,000 miners came together to burn their licenses and raise their own flag.
Because of this stand up on Sunday, 3rd of December, 1854 there was a short but gruesome battle at the Eureka mining camp where diggers built a stockade. 22 miners and 8 soldiers died.
After the battle many Victorians put pressure on the Government to let the diggers vote and 3 years later all Victorian men were allowed to vote.
all victorian men can now vote
