#HarrietTubman detractors don't know their history
No she wasn't a founding father or a president. Alexander Hamilton wasn't a president but the first treasury secretary and the man who came up with the treasury. Ben Franklin was the skilled diplomat who negotiated crucial French involvement in the Revolution.
Harriet Tubman helped free slaves on the Underground Railroad and was arguably more significant than both Franklin and Hamilton. So don't tell me she shouldn't take Jackson's place on the front of the 20.
