(Fox News) Andrew Jackson is out: Harriet Tubman replaces him on $20 bill!
The Treasury Department announced Harriet Tubman, an abolitionist, will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the new $20 bill.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew says, “It’s largely geared toward honoring the contribution of women in the country’s history. Our currency will now tell more of our story.”
Placing Tubman, on the 20 dollar bill, means she is the first African American on U.S. paper money ever, and the first woman in 100 years. Lew called it a “powerful message.” Lew is hoping to unveil the new bills in 2020. Lew’s announcement follows a heated debate ever since he said last summer the government planned to incorporate a woman on the $10 bill.
