Tubman replacing Jackson on the $20, Hamilton spared

Harriet Tubman will bump Andrew Jackson from the front of the $20 bill while Alexander Hamilton will stay put on the $10 — a historic move that gives a woman prime placement on U.S. currency and quells a controversy kicked up by Hamilton super-fans.

“Today, I’m excited to announce that for the first time in more than a century, the front of our currency will feature the portrait of a woman, Harriet Tubman, on the $20 note,” Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told reporters during a conference call Wednesday afternoon.

    1. Altough I dont agree with the choice, ive always thought it was ironic that Jacksons face was on a federal reserve note and often wonder what he would have thought of it, considering he spent a portion of his life fighting against a central bank.

  5. A decent little article from SBPDL. To the point but true.
    Planet of the apes. Never watched the flick but gazed at
    it briefly. Too disgusting.

    So, they want to replace the founder of the Democrat Party with a Republican?

    The irony is rich.
