Massacre of Tharawal and Gundungurra people

The main military party is based at Camden. The soldiers terrorise many Aboriginal people, shoot several and take half a dozen prisoners. They are unable to inflict Macquarie's 'terrible and exemplary punishments' until they come upon a camp at Appin one night. There they massacre 14 Tharawal and Gundungurra men, women and children, and take five surviving women and children prisoner.; (See videos by Glenda Chalker, Gavin Andrews, Frances Bodkin)
