We can call the new bills “Abbies”.

My nominee for the new $10 is Abigail Adams, wife of President John Adams, mother of President John Quincy Adams, and the woman who kept it all together back on the farm when John was off being a founding father.

She was an advocate of the property rights of women and strongly opposed to slavery.

Through her letters with John, she exerted a great deal of influence on the formation of our country.
