A look at who is on the $ 2 Bill?

There seems to be a bit of a renewed interest in the question of "Who is on the 2 Bill?"  The easy answer to that question is: Thomas Jefferson.  That is true.  He is the president that is listed on the front of the $2 bill.  But the answer is not that simple.  On the back of the $2 bill, there is an engraving of the famous painting by John Trumbull entitled: "The Declaration of Independence".  Although not representing the full painting, the image on the back of the 2 dollar bill includes most of the people from that famous painting.  So why are so many people interested in the question of Who is on the 2 Bill?  Perhaps it is because there are rumors circulating that indicate that one of the people depicted in the image is black.  Other rumors also contend that the person in question is John Hanson.  Furthermore, it is even circulating that this black person was in fact the real first president of the United States!  The rumors seem to indicate that this information has been concealed from the public in an effort to purposely cover up the facts of history.  Is there any truth to any of these rumors?  Let's take a look at Who is on the 2 Bill.

So, it appears that there is no image of John Hanson on the back of the $2 bill.  Furthermore, historically John Hanson was not even a black man (unless coincidentally there was more than one man by that name who had a similar role in history).  In addition, some people contend that there is proof to these rumors, because on some $2 bills the man sitting in position #13 has a dark complexion.  However, the man shown in position 13 is Robert Morris of Pennsylvania.  Furthermore, the darkened complexion shown on some of the bills is simply a color shading issue on some of the bills.  Robert Morris of Pennsylvania was not black.  So how did this whole cover up conspiracy rumor start?  Hard to know for sure... in fact, it's hard to know for sure all of the details of what happened over 200 years ago, but the myths and rumors surrounding Who is on the 2 Bill continues to intrigue and interest many American people.
