Edward "Ned" Kelly (June 1854 or 1855 – 11 November was an Irish Australian bushranger. Kelly's legacy is controversial; some consider him to be a murderous villain, while others view him as a folk hero and Australia's equivalent of Robin Hood.

Ned Kelly is thought of as either a villain or a hero, depending from what position you are coming. I admire his courage to stand up for what he believed in and to fight oppression and corrupt authority. Such is Life!

November 11 Ned Kelly the "Irish" bushranger and Australian folk hero is hanged in Melbourne.
