The U.S. Treasury Department has decided to keep Hamilton on the $10 bill, probably due to the success of the recent Broadway play "Hamilton."

Instead Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

Ben Carson, continuing to make sure people know that he is a fool, has suggested that Harriet Tubman go on the $2 bill because not many people use that denomination.

1. Neo-Confederates hate Hamilton and removing him from U.S. currency would have been a victory for them.

2. Neo-Confederates love Andrew Jackson who fought the Seminoles to preserve slavery.

3. Neo-Confederates will loath having an abolitionist, an African American and a woman on any U.S. currency. They will really hate Harriet Tubman being placed on the $20 bill and bumping Andrew Jackson off U.S. currency.

Religious Scholar gives his assessment of the meaning of Confederate iconography at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Richmond

The above is the link. The reassessment of church's connections to the Confederacy is happening.

St. Paul's Episcopal Church is the church I wrote back in 2014. They first decided to disinvite the United Daughters of the Confederacy, then they decided to assess their Confederate imagery in the Church.

The correspondence and news articles can be read at this link.

Scholar's Project on the story of integration in Little Rock, Arkansas.


I have a website supplying the pages of the White Citizens' Council newspaper for scholars of the Civil Rights movement.

I got an email and this website was put up using the materials.

It is about the story of the integration of Little Rock.

If you haven't checked out you should. You will realize that many discusses of civil rights and race today are echoes of the past discussions.
