Isaiah ‘Wild’ Wright ‘lost’ a horse while at the Kelly homestead and failed to tell Ned Kelly that it was stolen. Ned found the horse and rode it past the Greta Police Station to earn a brutal pistol-whipping from Constable Hall, who also tried to shoot him. Wild was sentenced to eighteen months while Ned was sentenced to three years hard labour.
On this day, November 11, in 1880, the notorious Irish-Australian outlaw Ned Kelly was hanged at Old Melbourne Gaol, after being convicted of murdering a police constable in 1878. Read more of his story here: http://bit.ly/1iZQFir
