Colonial engraving of Dan Morgan (1830-1865), the bushranger, born John Fuller. He was nicknamed “Mad Dog“, and was regarded in his time as “the most bloodthirsty ruffian that ever took to the bush in Australia”.  After Morgan killed a trooper in July 1864, the Government of New South Wales put a £1,000 bounty on his head. He was shot and killed after holding up Peechelba Station, in Victoria.
