This is a paper about Andrew Jackson being on the 20 dollar bill. The question I am going to answer is, should Andrew Jackson be on the 20 dollar bill? First of all, let 's talk about the characteristics someone needs to qualify to be put on U.S currency. I think, the person in question need to be honest, brave, a leader, and needs to fight for what they believe in. They can 't give up at the first sight of danger. They need to have done great things for America and need to be someone the U.S people idolize and believe in. It should be a person that the average citizen strives to be like. When you read my paper, you will learn facts about Andrew Jackson that either make you believe he should be on the 20 dollar bill or that he shouldn 't be.

As the fourth section progresses we are introduced to a variety of characteristics that define a rebel. My personal take was that you know you are truly rebel when you cannot be easily defined by stereotypes of a rebel. In addition, a rebellious person may rebel against multiple ideals but in rebelling against those ideals they support different ideals. Chris McCandless is a paragon of a rebel seen in his rebellion against societal norms but also his rebellion against characteristics of individuals that rebel against societal norms.
