Kick Andrew Jackson Off the $20 Bill!

My public high school wasn’t the best, but we did have an amazing history teacher. Mr. L, as we called him, brought our country’s story to life. So when he taught us about the Indian Removal Act and the Trail of Tears, Andrew Jackson’s campaigns to force at least 46,000 Cherokees, Choctaws, Muscogee-Creeks, Chickasaws, and Seminoles off their ancestral lands, my classmates and I were stricken.

I’VE BEEN SAYING THIS FOR YEARS. 

Please, take him off!  I don’t want to look at his disgusting face!  My ancestors were on the Trail of Tears, forced from their homes, and lost loved ones along the way.  I cannot and should not have to look at the man who forced them out.
