I say all this because Sheridan's book claimed his bashing was related to his involvement in a reform AUS move over direct elections for office bearers. The reference to this in Sheridan's book only accentuates his typical 'guilt by association' slander. There were thousands of Eureka flags carriers in Melbourne in The Cultural Workers for Independence CWI had hundreds of members and supporters from Shirley from the Skyhooks band to Geoff Hogg an internationally recognized wall muralist, to countless filmmakers, to artists galore. Thousands of trade unionists also carried Eureka flags on May Day marches!

There are probably many more supporters today. As do the North Melbourne Aussie Rules football fans. Returning to the Danby incident, no-one has ever of been arrested or charged over this event. It is interesting that Sheridan paints this event more colourfully with each and every media interview for his book. A similar image is created in his Brisbane interview with no one to argue to the contrary.

I was interviewed by the Commonwealth Police over this attack and was told they were looking for one, and at most, two suspects. Sheridan attacks AUS for other things such as the alleged violence against him and three other open disruptors during a screening of a pro-Palestinian land rights film at the Monash Conference.

Again I was not there as it occurred separately from the Conference deliberations venue. I cannot comment on the veracity of Sheridan's claims in his book. Does Sheridan seriously believe that he, Abbott and their mates, went to a film screening with a pro-Palestinian title, in a darkened room with forty other people, and expected no come back when they proceeded to disrupt the viewing of the other people in the room?

Or that he naively expected the film to present "both sides" of the debate? I guess the reputation shredding 'hit list' now includes Bob Carr?

This was untrue. The Arabic family-owned Scarf clothing company donated money for a pro-Palestinian booklet and the Jewish business lobby bank-rolled the Australian Union of Jewish Students during the 'constituent ratification debates.

Sheridan: Interviews and Recollections:

To my recollection, in AUS passed motions at its Annual Conferences simply calling for a student forum and debate in the absence of genuine mainstream media debate with no allocated finance from its budget. The other alleged and related violent incident involving the Newcastle delegate Anne McCosker that Sheridan refers to in his coverage of the Monash Conference I was not an eye-witness.

Nor does Sheridan present any beyond his travelling mates and the politically aligned victim. It happened in the corridors of one of the residential colleges, not at the conference hall. At face valour I accept the incident occurred. Had I been there I would have intervened to prevent any physical attack as Greg claimed Tony Abbott did on this occasion.

Nevertheless like other delegates to the conference I had to accept the internal investigation reports to the conference that delivered by professional members of staff and a broadly based Council committee. I will concede that there were a few hangers on to the Students for Australian Independence who enjoyed nothing more than a biff up with there right wing political opponents. I will further admit that one or two of them did not always fight by 'Queensbury Rules'.

No doubt they were from working class backgrounds and not elite middle class private school backgrounds. No doubt they may have been motivated by being thumped by wallopers and standover men from the bosses camp in the past? But that is no grounds for an anonymous slur against a whole political student movement in either your book or public pronouncements on the era. Unless you have an agenda other than truthfully recounting your "foolish youth"? Whether this was solely from his delegation seat at the conference table, or elsewhere as well, I cannot ascertain beyond hearsay.

However his actions did lead to a motion guaranteeing all female delegates of any political persuasion safe conduct to their assigned rooms within the college grounds for the remainder of the conference. Lloyd Fredendall with George S. Patton after the Kasserine Pass disaster.

Yet what happened to Warren after Five Forks is in a class by itself. His relief had little to do with his conduct during the battle; rather, it was predicated on what he might have done in the campaign to follow.


Robert E. Lee reacted aggressively by cobbling together a combined infantry-cavalry reaction force of some 19, men under Maj. George E. Pickett and dispatching it beyond the entrenched lines to stop Sheridan. The result was a sharp fight on March 31, near Dinwiddie Court House. Pressed hard throughout the day from the north and west, the Yankee troopers managed to stabilize a perimeter close to the courthouse as night brought an end to the fighting.

It had been touch and go at times, but at a cost of some casualties the Union cavalrymen had staved off disaster. When delay followed delay, Grant actually sent an officer to replace Warren but relented when the man reported that he could do no more than had Warren. Again, at Petersburg on June 18, Warren had ignored peremptory orders to attack, a pattern he repeated at the Crater on July Warren had an eventful day himself.

Heavy rain falling on March 30 had limited his operations to resupply. In a series of telegrams between his headquarters and those of his immediate superior, Maj. George G. Meade, Warren had worried that he was too exposed and for that reason was reluctant to venture out very far from his newly constructed works along the Boydton Plank Road. Meade responded by directing Maj.

    At p. Adding to the mix, the Boydton Plank Road was then blocked at its crossing of Gravelly Run by a destroyed bridge, made worse by high water from the recent storms. Even as engineers worked to restore the crossing, Warren was engaged in a frustrating exchange of messages with Meade trying to establish a common understanding of conditions. What would afterwards be seen as a key message sent by Meade was received by Warren at p.

    The entire V Corps was to disengage and march to assist Sheridan. Not until an hour later did army headquarters become aware of the stoppage at Gravelly Run.

    Another exchange of notes explored various alternate routes, but Warren believed that it would be quicker just to wait for the Gravelly Run bridge to be fixed. At a. All this activity had not gone unnoticed by the Confederates, who had given Sheridan such a hard time. He promptly ordered his mixed infantry-cavalry command to pull back. Although the Yankee scouts kept close tabs on the retrograde movement, the cavalryman let them depart without any serious challenge.

    This Lee could not allow, since such a move would uncover the important road junction known as Five Forks, which was bisected by the White Oak Road. Accordingly, Pickett took up a defensive position centered on the junction and facing south.
