#thenew20: Preserve Hamilton

1 min read

Well, there's an interesting intersection of pop-culture, history, and numismatics.

The creator of the Broadway musical "Hamilton" (a hip-hop biographic of Alexander Hamilton; catchy!) has retweeted a petition about the plan to remove Hamilton from the ten, instead of getting rid of Jackson on the twenty.

As of this writing, it only has 800-odd signatures, and it needs ten thousand by the end of the month.  This is probably a bad season for this sort of campaign, but I'll do my part to spread the news.

Oh, and about that musical: The lyrics are pretty well analized over on Genius, and even annotated by the author, Lin-Manuel Mranda.  Check 'em out!
