Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is scheduled to announce Wednesday that Harriet Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, Politico reports:
Lew’s decision comes after he announced last summer that he was considering replacing Hamilton on the $10 bill with a woman. The announcement drew swift rebukes from fans of Hamilton, who helped create the Treasury Department and the modern American financial system. Critics immediately suggested Lew take Jackson off the $20 bill given the former president’s role in moving native Americans off their land. Jackson may remain on the $20 bill in some capacity.
Lew is also scheduled to announce a decision to keep Alexander Hamilton on the front of the $10 bill.
