This monument commemorates the life of Narciso Gener Gonzales, a founder and editor of The State newspaper in Columbia, who was murdered by James H. Tillman on January 15, 1903.
Tillman, the Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina and the nephew of South Carolina's United States Senator "Pitchfork" Benjamin Tillman, shot and killed Gonzales at the corner of Main and Gervais Street. According to reports, Gonzales walked unarmed down the street when Tillman confronted him and opened fire. The newspaper speculated that the confrontation stemmed from Gonzales' severe opposition to Tillman's policies in many of his editorials in The State, as according to a January 16, 1903 edition of The State, Gonzales had previously called Tillman a "criminal candidate" and a "proven liar" during the previous primary election.

This is a day-by-day account of the notorious trial in 1903 of James Tillman, lieutenant governor of South Carolina, for the street killing of Narciso Gonzales, co-founder with his brothers of The State, the leading newspaper in the capital, Columbia. Tillman, a junior member of a powerful political family, gunned down Gonzales, unarmed and unwarned. James Lowell Underwood, a professor emeritus of constitutional law at the University of South Carolina, has combed the records and clippings of the trial to illuminate how and why a jury quickly acquitted Tillman. In his view, Tillman, it seems, was driven by anger over Gonzales' many (and truthful) criticisms in print and chose a remedy typical of a gun-carrying society. The twelve jurors readily assented.
