Harriet Tubman Will Be The New Face Of The $20 Bill
Harriet Tubman will be the new face of the $20 bill, replacing the 7th President of The United States, Andrew Jackson.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew will announce today that humanitarian Harriet Tubman will be the new face of the $20 bill.
According to the Treasury Department, Alexander Hamilton will remain on the $10 bill, and Jackson will be replaced with Tubman on the $20 bill. Hamilton has been the face of the $20 bill since 1929, but after talks the Obama Administration and Treasury decided that Tubman would be the new face of the $20 bill.
A plan was set to make a woman the face of the $10 bill, but that has now changed to Andrew Jackson being replaced on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman.
Tubman played a huge role in saving slaves during the American Civil war, and rescued more than 70 slaves during her 13 missions. She also worked with antislavery activists and used the Underground Railroad as a safe house.
