Yes, the little added plaque really says "Wyatt shouldn't have been shot - sorry."

We researched this over lunch and found a truly movie-worthy story of "The Bloody Espinosas". Their mother had been raped by U.S. soldiers during a war. The sons tracked down the men, came to Colorado and killed them. One of the great-grandchildren found the mistake and came back up to Colorado to apologize. Like I said, should be a movie.

The Fremantle Primary School Heritage Garden, an acknowledgment of the Old Alma Street Cemetery which was once located on the site of the now school. The site consists of seven free-standing headstones as mute witnesses to the many hundreds of men, women, children, seaman, army officers, convicts, their guards and others who made up the early European settlement of Fremantle.

The first burial at the cemetery was recorded on April 3, 1831 - John Livesay, boatswain, age 32. Mr Livesay died of scurvy. The first school on the site, the South Terrace School was established in 1904 after the cemetery was exhumed.
