Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will announce on Wednesday that abolitionist Harriet Tubman will replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

Tubman is famous for helping lead slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

Andrew Jackson was the seventh President of the United States (1829–1837).

One of the Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton, who is on the $10 bill, was rumored to be taken off the bill and replaced by Tubman. However, the decision was made to keep him on the $10 bill.
