Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced Wednesday that abolitionist Harriet Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. The long-awaited decision keeps Alexander Hamilton, one of the U.S. founding fathers, on the front of the $10 bill — though suffragists who fought to give women the right to vote will be added to the back of the bill, the Treasury Department confirmed. Suffrage leaders Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul will all be featured. 'I'm very excited by it and I think it's much bigger than just honoring one woman,' Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told NBC News. 'This is about saying that our money is going to tell a much bigger part of our story.'
