Harriet Tubman is the New Face of the $20 Bill
on 20 April 2016
After announcing last summer that they had plans to replace the face of Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill with a woman, the US Treasury has finally settled on which woman to depict: Harriet Tubman. The historical abolitionist, civil rights activist and humanitarian will actually not replace Hamilton, though, as the Treasury has decided instead to add her to the $20 bill, along with Andrew Jackson, who’s been criticized for his role in removing native Americans from their land. In addition, the $5 bill will also include the faces of other civil rights era leaders. Learn more at Politico.
