A Non-President Abolitionist Knocked A White Slave Owner Off The $20
Starting in 2020, Harriet Tubman is heading to the front of the $20 bill, replacing the seventh president of the United States, Andrew Jackson.By Matt Moreno | April 20, 2016
Harriet Tubman is heading to the $20 bill.
The U.S. Treasury Department announced Wednesday that the woman credited with saving hundreds of slaves will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill.
The U.S. Treasury Department originally said changes would occur on the $10 bill with Alexander Hamilton in 2022. But it appears Hamilton is going to stay, and Jackson will be kicked off the face of the bill starting in 2020 — 100 years after women first got the legal right to vote. Jackson will be moved to the back of the bill.
