Andrew Jackson was an atrocious human being and historians are rightfully being less kind to his Presidency. Glad he's been removed.

Andrew Jackson hated the idea of a national bank. Glad they saved Hamilton. The Drunk History episode on Harriet Tubman is badass

Glad they went with Tubman and not Susan B. Anthony as I was reading before. No disrespect to Anthony, but her name has become synonymous with "the only female we can think of" in our nation's history. And there are more.

Great choice, and I'm so happy they're getting rid of Jackson instead of Hamilton.

...I'm very disappointed they didn't go with a Native American leader. You could've easily just transitioned the one person that gets any attention from the useless gold coin she's currently on, and still ended up with a woman on currency, as well as a minority who was the victim of travesty at the hands of the US government. That man in particular.

I'm glad he's off the damn bill though. I can't express how much I hate him.

First I'm hearing this news. Awesome . Good choice.

This is a good post, too, though:

Damnit Ashley don't hit the wrong note in this surprising chorus of agreement.
