Ballarat & the Eureka Stockade

Ballarat is renowned for the events of 1854 which became the Eureka Stockade.  Because James Ford moved from Otago in New Zealand to Ballarat it perhaps opportune to make some notes about this important even in Ballarat’s and Australia’s history.  I have therefore added a page devoted to this subject which can be found here.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
