Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill? That’s fine by me.

BeFunky_487px-Harriet_Tubman_1895.jpgMaybe now more folks will pay attention to history.

However, the US Treasury is gonna need more than a woman on a bill to rescue its sorry excuse for design. It’s the 21st century and yet American money is still stuck in the 19th.

American money desperately needs a redesign. It needs to be cool to look at, with bright, vibrant colors and objects, such as butterflies and national parks.

Delving a bit deeper into this, Treasury is redoing the reverse side of bills, but I doubt the color and basic design schemes will change.

So just who is Harriet Tubman?

Born a slave, she escaped to the North in 1849. She helped abolitionist John Brown recruit men for the raid on Harpers Ferry. During the Civil War, she worked as a Union spy.

Now that’s impressive. Reminds me of Frederick Douglass.
