Last week we started on our journey of facing up to the struggles in our lives with courage, faith and determination. We determined that the true anecdote to fear is courage, and facing that fear can indeed be daunting at times.
As we tackle this topic, let’s look to three historical figures whose life sacrifice becomes the basis of why courage is such a majestic force of change.
Today we’ll explore the heroic lives of Harriet Tubman, the ex-slave who led more than 300 slaves to freedom, Solomon Northup, kidnapped into slavery only to emerge as a free man 12 years later and Abraham Lincoln who fierce determination to keep the Union in tact ultimately emancipated millions of slaves around the United States.
Freedom fighters and survivors whose courage triumphed over fear in the midst of some of the most painful periods of American history.
Harriet Tubman On The $20 Bill
WASHINGTON – In a letter to the American people, Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew today announced plans for the new $20, $10 and $5 notes, with the portrait of Harriet Tubman to be featured on the front of the new $20.
Secretary Lew also announced plans for the reverse of the new $10 to feature an image of the historic march for suffrage that ended on the steps of the Treasury Department and honor the leaders of the suffrage movement—Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul. The front of the new $10 note will maintain the portrait of Alexander Hamilton.
Finally, he announced plans for the reverse of the new $5 to honor events at the Lincoln Memorial that helped to shape our history and our democracy and prominent individuals involved in those events, including Marian Anderson, Eleanor Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr.
The reverse of the new $20 will feature images of the White House and President Andrew Jackson.
In his letter, Secretary Lew noted that the Bureau of Engraving and Printing will work closely with the Federal Reserve to accelerate work on the new $20 and $5 notes, with the goal that all three new notes go into circulation as quickly as possible, consistent with security requirements.
