Putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 is an Excellent opportunity to explain to children the reasons Andrew Jackson and other notable men are having their legacies reassessed, and the reasons the trump administration resisted these efforts.
Why did you replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill? How confusing for my daughter to have Harriet Tubman on it when she will never see money in circulation depicting this. To manufacture the game assuming this change is very wrong. A shame.
Thank you for your inquiry. An answer to your question is found on the inside box cover next to the instructions.
In 2016, US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that Harriet Tubman would replace Andrew Jackson on the Twenty dollar bill, and the new bills were slated to enter circulation around 2020. The change was motivated by public discomfort with Jackson’s signing of the Indian Removal Act, which led to widespread death and illness among Native Americans, as well as Jackson’s opposition to abolitionism and his active support of slavery.
eeBoo created this activity just after Lew’s announcement was made. The Tubman bills were sidelined by the Trump administration, but may well be released during the new administration.
Thanks for your interest.
