Jackson, Hamilton, Currency, Musicals


I understand Andrew Jackson (in the future) is to be removed from the Federal Reserve Bank's 20 Dollar denomination bill (which is used as currency in the USA in violation of the provisions of the U.S. Constitution).  The reason he is to be removed from the $20 is that Alexander Hamilton who had been slated for removal from the $10 Federal Reserve Note is the subject of hit musical on Broadway.  Full stop.
