Captain Thunderbolt’s Folly – John Donohue
How can it be that Frederick Ward, a master horseman and a good judge of horses, could find himself on a horse run down by a single mounted policeman and shot dead? It was indeed Captain Thunderbolt’s Folly! John Donohue examines the many unusual happenings on that fateful day, 25 May 1870. What started out as a typical day of plundering for the man known as Captain thunderbolt, became very complicated, leading to an unexpected finale at Kentucky Creek, a few miles from Uralla.
