I'd say the $50 then...people need to use more $50 bills anyway. I haven't seen one in AGES. The $10 bill would also be a good one for Tubman.

President Andrrew Jackson is out and abolitionist Harriet Tubman is in as the new face on the twenty dollar bill. In a big push by women's groups, namely the "Women On 20s" group whose goal is to have a female figure to replace Jackson. The runner-up was Eleanor Roosevelt whom Tubman beat by only 7000 votes.
More than 600,000 people voted in the online poll, and Tubman won with over 33% of the vote, beating runner-up Eleanor Roosevelt by 7,000 votes. Tubman was an escaped slave and abolitionist who devoted her life to working as a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, helping other slaves get to safety. She also served as a spy and scout for the Union Army during the Civil War.
Harriet Tubman is the new face of the $20 bill. What does ATS think?
Well that's interesting. I believe she will be the first black woman on US currency, the first woman being Martha Washington. Wonder why they replaced Jackson though? How often are people replaced on bills?

I agree she probably deserves more recognision than given, and replacing Jackson with her face is a great way of showing that respect.. But damn thats gonna be one ugly looking $20.
