The Ned Kelly Story.
So what is all the fuss about? What turns an ordinary Australian into a Legend? Known world wide. An Outlaw or a Hero? Considering the Police ,after the siege at the Glenrowan Inn , on a cold winters morning in June 1880 , were going to destroy the armour , worn by the Kelly Gang (so people couldn't mimic the outlaws) ,but instead chucked it all into Hessian sacks to be destroyed later , they sat in the confines of the library or museum for years and was then put on display and does tours around Australia and OS . Well, 130 years down the Track how many Movies , Books ,Websites Etc etc and Ned is still hitting the newspapers on a regular basis, used in TV Commercials ,Stamps , Coins, Documentaries and the list goes on..... Quote If my lips teach the public that men are made mad by bad treatment, and if the police are taught that they may not exasperate to madness of the men they persecute and ill-treat, my life will not entirely be thrown away. Ned Kelly 1/11/1880 Famous Last Words
