Despite the apparent carnage sent in the film, only 27 deaths (22 miners and 5 soldiers) are officially attributed to the action at the Stockade. In the Victorian Register of Births, Deaths and Marriages, there is a consecutive list of 27 names all registered as having died at Ballarat on December 3rd. However, there may have been wounded miners who escaped and died of wounds and injuries later and whose deaths were never attributed to involvement at the stockade. See more
We wish to acknowledge the full co-operation of the Commonwealth Government of Australia and particularly the enthusiastic help of the Department of the Army. See more
