I am not sure why but for some reason I remember learning in grade school that Benjamin Franklin was the only non-US President on our currency. That is not the case. Not counting coins, there are actually three:
|Denomination||Face on Bill||Image (source: Wikipedia)|
|$1||President George Washington|
|$2||President Thomas Jefferson|
|$5||President Abraham Lincoln|
|$10||the first Secretary of Treasury Alexander Hamilton|
|$20||President Andrew Jackson|
|$50||President Ulysses S. Grant|
|$100||statesman and inventor, Benjamin Franklin|
|$500||President William McKinley|
|$1,000||President Grover Cleveland|
|$5,000||President James Madison|
|$10,000||Secretary of the Treasury and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Salmon Chase|
|$100,000||President Woodrow Wilson|
Don't you hate it when you have a $100,000 bill, and no one has ten $10,000 bills to provide as change? I kid. I kid. Actually the largest bill I have ever seen is $100.
Straightening out my own misconception is alive in the lab.
