Release of Harriet Tubman $20 Bill Delayed Until Trump Leaves Office

This photograph released by the Library of Congress and provided by Abrams Books shows Harriet Tubman in a photograph dating from 1860-75. Tubman was born into slavery, but escaped to Philadelphia in 1849, and provided valuable intelligence to Union forces during the Civil War. The image is one of nearly 500 photographs, lithographs, paintings, drawings and cartoons from the library’s collection published in a new volume, “The American Civil War – 365 Days”.

Harriet Tubman, will not be gracing the $20 dollar bill at least until 2028.  The Trump administration is creating the delay after the Obama administration paved the way for her likeness to be on the bill in 2020.   This decision was revealed by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin during testimony on the Hill this week.
