name is Ned Kelly,
I’m known adversely well.
My ranks are free,
my name is law,
Wherever I do dwell.
My friends are all united,
my mates are lying near.
We sleep beneath shady trees,
No danger do we fear. Joe Byrne
lieutenant Joe Byrne liked to put pen to paper.
When he wasn't dictating Ned's speeches he was
busy writing letters and poems to friends and lovers.
Through the years many writers have felt the urge
to tell their Kelly story through the art of prose
so we thought it high time Ironoutalw.com dedicated
a section to these fascinating literary gems.

While not everyone wants to read about Ned Kelly or the ANZACs or
even The Great Depression, we hope they
want to learn something about
Australian History. From the ex-Prime Minister
John Howard to a confused ex-NSW Education Minister Carmel Tebbutt
(see the 'ex' pattern here?) a number of politicians have jumped on the teaching history bandwagon. But at what
cost? From right wingers
to a multitude of meddling State Governments, it seems
everyone has an agenda. We'd like to let the readers decide
what is worth learning. Here at IronOutlaw.com we
present the facts, the fiction and everything in between. It
all adds to the experience and hopefully makes history an exciting
place to be while also proving it doesn't always have to be written by the victors. [site map]
