Since the U.S. Treasury announced plans last summer to feature a woman on the $10 bill, there’s been a debate over who that woman should be. There’s also been a debate over whether Alexander Hamilton, whose portrait is featured on that bill, should be the one replaced instead of another figure on another bill.
