The U.S. mint has decided to remove Alexander Hamilton from the ten dollar bill. I, for one, do not agree with this decision. Why should Hamilton be removed when he was one of the most influential men in the history of our nation? I understand the willingness to put a woman on our currency. In fact, I support the move considering the precedence that was set forth when Pocohantas was featured on the twenty dollar bill from 1865 to 1869 and Martha Washington was featured on the one dollar (in silver) note.1 (Not to mention the currently in circulation Sacagewea gold dollar coin.) Basically, this is nothing new under the sun. That being said, we shouldn’t replace Alexander Hamilton from the ten dollar bill because Hamilton was one of the only Founding Fathers to achieve the American Dream for himself, he was the driving force in the founding of the American banking system, and he wasamong the greatest proponents of the American Constitution.
