The $20 bill is getting a new face. The U.S. Treasury says anti-slavery crusader Harriet Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the Twenty. Tubman would be the first woman featured on the face of U.S. paper currency in more than a century. The long-awaited decision keeps Alexander Hamilton, one of the country's founding fathers, on the front of the $10 bill, according to Politico, citing unnamed sources. There will also be changes to the $5 bill to depict civil rights era leaders.
