Henry Parkes – PEACE

« Surely what the Americans had done by war, the Australians could bring about in peace. » ~Henry Parkes

(During his long political career, Parkes represented nine different electorates, several in rural areas, including from 1882 to 1884, the seat of Tenterfield. Now he was looking for an opportunity to breathe new life into the campaign for federation.At a banquet held in the Tenterfield School of Arts, Parkes made the case for a national government for the colonies of Australia and New Zealand).
