43 NON-FICTION NON-FICTION BOOK CLUB READS Top 40 2016 Australian Confederates Terry Smyth In 1865, Australia was in the midst of gold rushes and bushrangers when the Shenandoah, from the Yankee merchant fleet captained by Lieutenant Commander James Waddell, docked in Hobsons Bay, Victoria. The people of Melbourne welcomed the American Confederate soldiers on board the Shenandoah with open arms. The soliders were entertained and given rail passes so they could get around Melbourne easily – there was even a ball in their honour. When it came time to leave, 42 Australians joined their ship and, once out to sea, joined the rebel cause. This is a incredible story and a great historical look at Australia’s role in the American Civil War.
