Raffaello Carboni was born in Urbino, Italy in 1817. His book, The Eureka Stockade, the only complete first-hand description and analysis of the causes of the attack on the Eureka Stockade, was published a year after the uprising.

Raffaello Carboni was born in Urbino, Italy in 1817. Dedicated to the cause of Italian nationalism, he fought with the forces of Mazzini and Garibaldi to free Italy from Austrian influence. After the fall of the Roman Republic (1849–1850), he fled to London and then to Melbourne. Carboni became a naturalised British citizen, but left Australia 18 January 1856, sailing in the Impératrice Eugénie, and using some of the gold found at Ballarat to pay for his travels.

There is something real, something tangible which you can almost touch in Carboni's book. He wrote it as he himself felt it. Not as a casual observer but firmly immersed in the landscape and the tumultuous events unfolding on the Ballaraat goldfields. You can smell the eucalypts, the gunpowder smoke and the colourful miners running to and fro with the Eureka flag flying high....

If you have interest in the history of Australia, this is one for you. Oz, founded after we kicked the Poms out, was not unlike the early US. A fascinating country with a fascinating history.
If you go to OZ, there is a lot of history to see.

My grandmother was raised on the goldfields of Baalarat. So I grew up hearing the story of the Eureka stockade'
To find this book for Kindle was surprising. My grandmother had an original copy of this book. It was left to her eldest son.
But somehow it had gone missing at the time of his death. Re reading this book on kindle was a delight.

I really like this book, which provides a first hand account of the events surrounding the Eureka Stockade in late 1854 and the consequential events through 1855 (including the disgracefully perjured, but thankfully failed, treason trials in early 1855). Raffaello Carboni was a thoughtful and passionate man and that passion carries through to his writing, which frequently drops into Latin and Italian with the odd bit of French and German. And it is wonderful to hear his words, which were taken up much later by Martin Luther King - from Raffaello's speech to the Monster Meeting at Bakery Hill, a few days before the slaughter at the stockade - "I had a dream, a happy dream, I dreamed that we had met here together to render thanks unto our Father in heaven for a plentiful harvest, such that for the first time in this, our adopted land, we had our own food for the year; and so each of us holding in our hands a tumbler of Victorian wine, you called on me for a song. My harp was tuned and in good order. I cheerfully struck up, 'Oh, let us be happy together.'" What an orator, what a character.

Much of the book is wild and disjointed, moving across time and events, but all of this helps bring the excitement of the times and the idiosyncratic Raffaello to life. In amongst the excitement, he does write beautifully, he provides a wonderful description of Ballarat as 'a Nugety Eldorado for the few, a ruinous Field of hard labour for many, a profound ditch of Perdition for Body and Soul to all.' Raffaello disappeared from the colony (and history) about 12 months after the Eureka Stockade, by then a man whose health had been damaged by his lengthy false imprisonment in poor conditions while awaiting his treason trial. It seems that he probably returned to Rome at his brother's calling, but I'd love to know what became of this man.

If you can find the 1982 edition of this book, it has an excellent (and quite lengthy) introduction written by H V Evatt in 1942 which is well worth a read. And given the early date of Evatt's introduction, it too is an important piece of Australian history.
