Ned Kelly: Australian Iron Outlaw | Hero | Legend
Circulated throughout Victoria and the Riverina district of New South Wales, petitioners for Ned’s reprieve signed forms like this. When the petition was presented to Parliament, more than 32,000 men, women and children had signed. Another 28,000 signatures are said to have been collected by the day of Ned’s execution. The Victorian Government attempted to discredit the sheer volume of signatures by labelling the participants as undesirables made up of ruffians and the dregs of society.
