    Interesting, so Australia really was a KL.

    Also Sandgroper, "as an act of kindness" the next of kin could be allowed to hang off the legs of those incompletely hanged to end the prolonged strangulation.

    The buffalo was also the first ship to bring free settlers to our great state of South Australia, the only state without convicts....there is a replica of the ship in Adelaide that is a restaurant

    As I remember she was the only ship built for this purpose, all the others used were converted.
    I also understand she was rather worn out by the time the Canadians were put on her.

    Get info guys, very happy that you are as interested in this as I am!!

    All Kidding aside, these "trials" were a farce, may that had nothing to do with the uprising were shipped off, many villages were burn by the Loyists, again for little or no reason. A rough time here for many.

    But love all the comments.
