This Day in History: 1808-09-28

– On September 28, 1803, James Tracey paid the ultimate price for a bold but ill-fated move after he entered the house of Samuel Phelps at Hawkesbury in NSW. This wasn’t a mere trespass; he knocked Samuel down, bound his hands and feet, and robbed him. After his capture, James Tracey was hanged on this day at Castle Hill, NSW, depicting the tough justice that existed in the olden days. 🏡🚨
