On December 1, the miners began to construct a wooden barricade, a rather flimsy stockade from which they planned to make their stand against further licence arrests or other unreasonable displays of authority. The causes of the Eureka stockade were that the miners license was 30 shillings per month and the could only claim a certain amount of land to mine for gold and if you tryed to mine without a license well there were troopers everywhere any the were always checking for licenses then later irish immigrant Peter Lalor was elected to lead the rebellion, which caused the huge battle, now known as the Battle of the Eureka Stockade, on December 3 1854.
