Goldfields Involvement, 1854
Post 1854 Experiences
George N. Backers (or Bachers) signed the Benden Hassell compensation claim in 1855.
On 28 November 1854 a detachment of the 12th Regiment entered Ballarat between nine and ten o’clock at night and marched through the Eureka Diggings accompanied by some transport waggons. An incident ensued which resulted in injuries to the Drummer Boy, John Egan; the publican, Benden Hassell; and the carter, George Young. This is the incident which is described below.
