home Who Was Benjamin Tillman?

Join the Protest this January


“When something happens between June and December, is it going to last [as a hot topic] until we get back into session?” he speculates. “The answer is, ‘I don’t know.’” — Rep. Todd Rutherford


Rep. Seth Rose is submitting a resolution to remove the Tillman statue now, but the earliest South Carolina’s lawmakers can debate the issue is next session, which starts on January 12. This protest on that same day will let our representatives know the intervening days have not cooled our anger over the Tillman statue.
