March 10 is Harriet Tubman Day!! A time to honor and remember this incredible American. Maybe 2021 we will finally see her put on the $20 bill. At this point though let’s put her on the $100. We should be switching all our currency up.
For 2020 CNN posted a nice timeline of Harrit Tubman’s life:
More than a dozen times in her life, she sacrificed her freedom to travel back to
Maryland where she had escaped. And by doing so, she changed the course of American history.
Since 1990, the US celebrates her achievements on March 10 — Harriet Tubman Day.
If you are tired of waiting for the treasury to do the right thing you can make your own Harriet bills. Maybe have a stamping party to commemorate the day?
