As everybody knows by know, Harriet Tubman’s image is supposed to replace Andrew Jackson on the front of the U.S. twenty-dollar bill.
I thought readers, and my students, would find it useful to collect related resources. I’ll be adding a link to this list to my U.S. History class blog, too.
Because of that, the resources I’ll list here first are accessible to English Language Learners. The ones near the end of the list are useful to mainstream students and to teachers:
