The 160th anniversary of the "Eureka Stockade" incident is this year, the 40th & 12th Regt Regt were involved in that, as were mounted constabulary etc on the one side & miners/diggers on the other. There is a large re-enactment happening on the 6th & 7th December. Organizer's had to give up on the idea of holding it at Ballarat, shame Victoria, & the event is happening instead in N.S.W. Registrations to participate are happening at present online at http://historyresourcegroup.tripod.com/id21.html & http://historyresourcegroup.tripod.com/id21.html & it has a facebook site as well
A relatively easy one for re-enactors & black Powder shooters to get involved with.
