In the 1860s the Clarke Gang terrorised the area around Braidwood, NSW. Over the years the gang members were killed or captured until the last two members were ringleader Thomas Clarke and his little brother John. Thomas Clarke was a stock thief who soon became a highwayman and murderer, dragging family members into his lawless activities and eventually meeting his end on the gallows after a big shoot-out with police.
