New Face Coming To The $10 Bill

By  | 

In January the announcement was made a newly redesigned $10 bill will feature a notable woman in America.

The Wyoming Women's Legislature Caucus is encouraging people to rally behind Esther Hobart Morris. She was appointed the nation's first female Justice of Peace in South Pass City and was an important symbol in women's suffrage.

Another name offered by the Wyoming State Archive and Historic Governor's Mansion is Nellie Tayloe Ross. She was the first female governor in the nation, serving in Wyoming, and the director of the U.S. Mint.

The U.S. Treasury Secretary is asking for ideas and feedback using the hashtag #TheNew10 on social media.
