The Treasury Department announced today that they plan to replace the picture of President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill with one of abolitionist, Underground Railroad conductor, and Union spy Harriett Tubman.
Tubman was no pacifist. Her pistol and ivory-handled sword were on display at Florida A&M University’s museum back in 2013. As Comfortably Smug suggests in the Tweet below, the picture of Tubman on the $20 bill should feature her holding her pistol.
Republicans need to push for the portrait of Harriet Tubman on the $20 to feature her gun. A true American hero. pic.twitter.com/ChRshCRYld

I quite agree that Republicans – the party behind abolition in the first place – should push for this portrait of Tubman to grace the new $20 bill. Call your Representatives and Senators to demand this!
UPDATE: David Burge aka Iowahawk suggests another picture in this Tweet.
