Before I go to bed tonight, I want you all to know that I spoke to
Barbara Howard (founder of the Women on 20’s movement) earlier and she
told me that the Treasury is apparently super embarrassed that they
launched a campaign to change the $10 right when ‘Hamilton’ became
They called it “that play in New York” and their PR department is
reeling so badly that Secretary Lew has had to backtrack and say that “a
woman will be on the currency” rather than “a woman will be on the ten”
whenever people ask about it
She also said that they’ve been flooded with emails from
Hamiltonians, fans of the musical, and Andrew Jackson’s actual
descendants supporting Hamilton and condemning Jackson (his own family!!
Anyway isn’t that just the best thing
GOOD. PUT WOMEN ON ALL THE OTHER MONEY. BUT HAMILTON GETS TO STAY.
EVEN JACKSON’S OWN DESCENDANTS
“that play in New York” like it’s fucking Macbeth.
