Ohio hometowners rally to keep Ulysses S. Grant on $50 bill



Published: Fri, April 23, 2010 @ 2:55 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Folks in southern Ohio are mounting a counterattack against a congressional proposal to replace native son Ulysses S. Grant with Ronald Reagan on the $50 bill.

Politicians have passed resolutions, businesses put up signs, and there’s a Facebook page for the cause of leaving the image of the Civil War general and president as it is.

A bill in the U.S. House seeks to put Reagan — the late 40th president and conservative icon — on the 50.

Grant’s backers will drum up more support Saturday with events to celebrate his April 27, 1822, birthday at his Point Pleasant birthplace and his boyhood hometown of Georgetown east of Cincinnati.

A North Carolina congressman wants to honor Reagan for the 100th anniversary of his birth next year.

Let's put Reagan on a credit card.

He tripled the national debt while president.
