Charlie Flannigan was a prize-winning jockey and stockman who became the centre of a murder trial that gripped the Northern Territory in 1892.

Darwin-based historian and Library & Archives NT curator Don Nawurlarny Christopherson spoke with Aboriginal Way about the impact of Flannigan’s sketches, found in the SA museum archives, before he became the first person officially sentenced to death in the Northern Territory.
