Ben Hall is sometimes referred to as the “gentleman bushranger”. His early adult life held promise but everything changed when he met Frank Gardiner and he entered into a life of crime. Hall and his gang committed hundreds of robberies, many of which were violent. For a time, Hall had the support of the public, who respected his daring and courage and admired him for outwitting the police.
