Storyboard Text

  • 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.
  • YEAAAAH!
  • all victorian men can now vote
  • THE END
