TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- A group called Women on 20s started a movement earlier this year to have a woman replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

So they decided to put it to a vote to see which female figure should take his place.

There were four finalists: Harriet Tubman, Wilma Mankiller, Eleanor Roosevelt and Rosa Parks.

On Tuesday they announced the winner: Harriet Tubman.

Tubman escaped slavery and then help bring 70 others to freedom, even serving as a spy for the union army during the Civil War.
