Alexander Hamilton Will Stay On $10 Bill, But $20 Bill Will Get New Face

Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, founder of America's financial system and Treasury Department under George Washington, has posthumously won another victory — keeping his face on the front of the $10 bill. But Andrew Jackson — war hero, dualist, and America's first Democrat president — has lost his place on the $20.


According to the Politico, Jackson, who has been looked down on in more recent times for relocating Native Americans from the South to Oklahoma, will be removed from the $20 in favor of Harriet Tubman, a black woman and former slave credited with helping 70 enslaved friends and family members escape to freedom through the Underground Railroad network. Tubman also became the first woman to lead an armed military expedition during the Civil War, guiding a raid that freed over 700 slaves, according to

Tubman was original proposed as a replacement for Hamilton on the $10 bill. The U.S. Treasury is planning to announce more changes today, including putting Women's Suffrage Movement activists on the back of the $10 bill and adding civil rights era figures to the $5 bill.
