Please enjoy the story of the KellyGang, but also remember that at least 10 people died and many more had their lives changed in ways that may still be painful to some people.

The Glenrowan siege was in a way the end of the KellyGang. The Fitzpatrick incident was part of the start of this story, so was the murder of Sergeant Kennedy and Constable Lonigan. The robberies at Euroa and Jerilderie were wonderfully planned operations. Aaron Sherritt life as a police agent ended as part of a grand plan to destroy the police.

The story is also about how the police hunted for the KellyGang and how the KellyGang supporter's looked after each other and their friends.

Start with an outline of what happened to the KellyGang and then go on to see what happened year by year and day by day.
