Harriet Tubman Will Replace Jackson on $20 Bill, Alexander Hamilton Staying on $10 Bill

Harriet Tubman will be replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, and Alexander Hamilton is staying put on the $10 bill.

Lin Manuel-Miranda, creator of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, spoke with Treasury Secretary Jack Lew after he announced plans to initially replace Alexander Hamilton on the ten. Fans of Hamilton also fought to keep Hamilton on the ten dollar bill. Secretery Lew listened, and replaced Andrew Jackson with historical figure Harriet Tubman.

The ten dollar bill is expected to be redesigned to include women and civil rights leaders as well, featured on the back and Alexander Hamilton on the front, the New York Times reports. Expect to see the new designs in 2020.

    Jackson was one of our worst presidents. Still can’t figure out how he got onto the $20 in the first place. Thank god they’ve come to their senses.

    He was a racist and started a genocide but he took on the FED, a war hero and fought corruption. He was an @asshole though. However compared to obama he was head and shoulders greater.

    Pandering to who, people who are against slavery? How dare they! Tell me one good reason why Harriet Tubman isn’t deserving of being on the $20 bill?
