On current bills:

Hamilton - $10

Franklin - $100

On bills no longer in use:

$10,000 - Salmon P. Chase

Alexander Hamilton and Ben Franklin of course.

Salmon P. Chase was on the $10,000 bill when there were larger denomination bills printed. A bit of history shows he did just about everything in American Politics. He was U.S. Senator, a Governor, Secretary of the Treasury and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
