Ned Kelly

Ned Kelly was hanged a murderer in Melbourne on the 11th of November 1880. He was 25 years old. He was a man with a strong sense of family, misunderstood by many, a larikin and underdog, bushranger and rebel making his way in a country borne out of brutal, harsh convict settlement. What is astonishing is that when Ned was sentenced to hang 30,000 people signed a petition asking for a reprieve, sadly for Ned, he never was.
