Question

Guest

1. Long, long ago a struggle was fought

The year ended is just above aught

The name can be one made of a clue

But "fall and float" is all given you.

2. The time is decaded, inverse arithmetic

With only of a couple, not very poetic.

3. Maximum value of principal- applies

For who fought this spoke no lies.

Effect afflicted much evil to befall

A source invoked, for a long haul.

4. 7477 to 7697 taking place; seven it dropped

For the next, tryed and missed and stopped.

5. Each above a clue to the riddle I write.

I happened just like that, or only a trite;

History never fail, or a myth brought to light.

Each 'stanza' is counted as revealing a clue, each 'answer' to the 1 stanza- may have 1 or more words but will be counted as 1 answer, those answers in turn will reveil a final answer to the Riddle.

Explanation.................

EDIT: no sry, not the final anwser.

Battle of the Teutoburg Forest? Not sure how this would fit in with the "float" part, but this was the first big battle lost by the Romans and ended their successful expansion

September 11th. 747, type of airplane. talking about evil and fighting, maybe dealing with the Middle East (long time ago). The "couple" in the 2nd verse for 11, the 1 + 1 make a couple. I don't know just a thought.

Your answers are not correct, BUT your use of deduction in trying to figure the

clues are almost headon....you date....not off by much...........
