THIS DAY IN HIS­TORY 1880

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Regional Extra - - NEWS -

JUNE 27, 1880 was the sec­ond day of the Glen­rowan Siege, with Aaron Sher­ritt dead, many of Glen­rowan’s law abid­ing pop­u­la­tion, held hostage, and the gang as­sum­ing po­lice would be sent for that they could am­bush. As the day wore on and no po­lice ap­peared, the at­mos­phere at Ann Jones’ Inn re­laxed, but po­lice forces were still mo­bil­is­ing them­selves for com­bat and a train with po­lice left Mel­bourne for Glen­rowan late that evening.
