Martin Cash was one of Tasmania's most notorious bushrangers, famed for escaping Port Arthur - TWICE. He formed a gang with two other convicts, Englishman George Jones and Irishman Lawrence Kavanagh, called Cash and Co. It all came tumbling down when he tried to murder his cheating wife and got nabbed. After many years in prison he produced a book about his life and died as an old man - one of the few bushrangers to do so.

The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. Positioned below the rattlesnake are the words "Don't tread on me". The flag is named after American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden (1724–1805), who designed it in 1775 during the American Revolution. It was also used by the Continental Marines as an early motto flag, along with the Moultrie Flag. In modern times, the Gadsden flag is often associated with political movements such as libertarianism and the American Tea Party, and has been used by U.S. Soccer supporter groups including Sam's Army and The American Outlaws since the late 1980s.
