The oath

Over the next few days I will touch upon one of the most significant events in Australian history called the Eureka Stockade, and it all hapened in Ballarat. In the meantime, I will let you ponder these words:

We swear by the Southern Cross
To stand truly by each other
And defend our rights and liberties

Peter Lalor, 1854
