The State reminded us on Feb. 27 that Robert Smalls is a genuine S.C. hero. Pitchfork Ben Tillman is the very definition of an anti-hero. Why not pull down the Tillman statue on the State House grounds, recycle the metal and use it to cast a statue of Robert Smalls, mounted on the same pedestal? Citizens could be invited to contribute money for the project.
