Why Is Andrew Jackson on the 20 Dollar Bill?

Answer

Only the United States Treasury knows the answer, and they haven't historically offered explanations why any particular US statesman is featured on various forms of American currency. The inclusion of Andrew Jackson is somewhat ironic, as he was against the concept of printed money.

Andrew Jackson was initially put on the 20 dollar bill to mock him, it was done by later administrations who knew he was totally against paper money and the National bank.
The only people who know the real reason that Grover Cleavland was taken off of the $20 and Andrew Jackson was put on to the $20 dollar bill is the US Department of Treasury, and they aren't telling. They say it is there policy not to reveal the reasons behind who is on what bill. You can find more information here: en.wikipedia.org
