The Hanging at the Brisbane Windmill


'In 1841 two Aboriginal men were sentenced to death for a vicious murder that they may not have committed. They were hanged from a makeshift gallows on the windmill, the most prominent landmark in the convict settlement of Brisbane. This is the story of a flawed legal system determined to drive home the terror of a new law to local Aborigines, and the people caught up in a bloody rush to justice.'
