It's bad enough that he was a 100 years out. Even worse, he used the Americanised "organization" instead of the British "organisation".

Nice work, Girt. Even though it doesn't show who wrote the piece you'd like to think there were at least a couple of readers who didn't miss the mistake and fired off a letter to the editor.
I wonder how many people read it and DID accept 1954.

I remember The Courier did a big article on "the other ballarat" a couple years ago.
Given the americanized reference, perhaps he was referring to Ballarat, CA
you mighta jumped to conclusions big fella.

I think I went to Ballarat, is that the one with the rebuilt mining village ?

Ballarat Reform League. And yep, Ballarat is near to Sovereign Hill, the rebuilt mining town.
