Peter Lalor and the Eureka Stockade

In 1854, a group of gold miners, led by Peter Lalor, built a wooden fort and took up guns against government troops. They believed they were fighting for justice and the right to vote, but the government saw the miners as troublemakers and rebels. The miners lost the battle, but eventually won the fight.
