Description Free Sample Download
Written by William Withers in 1887, the author saw first-hand, the growth of Ballarat from before the gold era, and is therefore able to present not only an interesting, but also an accurate view of the history of the Ballarat region from its earliest days, through the gold era and up to 1887. This second edition of 'The History of Ballarat' was written 17 years after the first edition and consequently includes a reasonable amount of additional information.

You will find chapters on various topics including: Ballarat before the gold discovery, the gold discovery, from the gold discovery to the Eureka Stockade, digger hunting, the Eureka Stockade, political development, mining and the town of Ballarat. It also includes several drawings by S.T. Gill as well as maps, plans and copies of original documents.

This is a fascinating book for all with a history in this region.
