Before Ned Kelly, the infamous Australian bushranger, there was Ben Hall. In fact, it is thought by numerous people that many of Ben Hall’s exploits were copied by Ned.Hall operated in New South Wales, and his daring escapades earned him the title of ‘Brave Ben Hall’, making him a part of Australian folklore. Throughout his career outside the law he did not kill anyone, but when the Felons Apprehension Act was passed in 1865, as an outlaw he could be shot and killed without warning. As a result, he was shot by the police from ambush. The legality of his killing remains controversial.
