The father of US currency should stay on US currency

I'm in favor of putting the images of important women from our history on US currency. 

But I hope that this will never be done at the expense of honoring Alexander Hamilton. 

George Will has rightly said that we honor Jefferson, but we live in Hamilton's country. 

For his indefatigable advocacy of the ratification of the Constitution and his work as the first secretary of the treasury, through which he helped unite the United States of America, no one had more to do with fashioning the nation we live than Hamilton. 

I feel that apart from George Washington, Alexander Hamilton was the greatest of the Revolutionary War-generation.
