Did you know that there is a new twenty dollar bill coming out? And it has Harriet Tubman on it!

Andrew Jackson used to be at the front and center of the $20 bill but they replaced it with Harriet Tubman!

Harriet Tubman was an African American slave and abolitionist. She was born in Dorchester County, Maryland.   She escaped and made 19 rescue missions to help save other slaves in the Underground Railroad. Harriet Tubman died on March 10, 1913.

When Barack Obama was still in office, a little girl named Sofia, asked him why there was no woman on the dollar bill. Obama thought it was a good idea to put a woman on it. Sofia said she was studying Ann Hutchinson, who stood up for women’s rights. A lot of the other kids that picked famous men to study were able to place pictures of dollar bills or coins in their reports. This caught his attention.

They were originally going to put a woman on the $10 bill,  but since everyone loves Alexander Hamilton they decided to put a woman on the $20 bill instead. Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Rosa Parks were the top choices for the new bill.  Harriet Tubman ended up winning.

Don’t get too excited for the new twenty dollar bill. We could be in college by the time it comes out!  It takes a lot of time for them to print it and for it to go into circulation.
