The Hill reports:
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced Wednesday that the image of President Andrew Jackson will be moved to the back of the $20 bill, with Tubman replacing him on the front.
Lew also announced that Alexander Hamilton will remain on the front of the $10 bill and that leaders of the women’s suffrage movement will appear on the back.
