Eureka Stockade

Eureka Stockades

Six of the police and troopers were killed in the fight of Eureka Stockades. 125 miners where taken prisoner. 22 deaths among the diggers and they were no match for the police and army. The Eureka Stockade was caused by a disagreement over what gold miners felt were unfair laws and policing of their work by government.
