Elizabeth Hamilton $10 Bill Ladies Socks
- National Archives Store Exclusive
We like to imagine how things might look if a few of the Founding Mothers were more visible and given recognition for their roles. What if Alexander Hamilton’s wife’s picture was depicted on the ten dollar bill instead of her husband's? We’ve put Elizabeth Hamilton in the spotlight, giving her the focus, and acknowledging that she too played an important part in the founding of the United States. We invite you to have some fun with us and enjoy our reimagined $10 bill on these fun ladies' socks.
