Harriet Tubman To Replace Andrew Jackson On $20 Bill


Harriet Tubman To Replace Andrew Jackson On $20 Bill

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will announce Wednesday that Harriet Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, Politico and Bloomberg reported.

Lew is also expected to announce that leaders of the movement to give women the right to vote will be on the back of the $10 bill. Alexander Hamilton will remain the face of that bill.

Tubman was the winner of a ten week poll that was conducted in 2015, beating out former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks and serveral others. 33.6 percent of the 352,431 votes casted in the final round of the poll.

The change to Tubman may not take place anytime soon. CNN reported Sunday the soonest the U.S. could see the new $20 would be 2030. A Treasury official did not immediately return a request for more information on when Tubman could feasibly appear on the $20 note.
