Hmm...Nope, he's leading you down the wrong track...although anyone in the world can go down that track thanks to him :D

got a question for you....

does he have anything to do with the underground railroad?

or is it someone responcible for the railroad going through?

Nope, one of my earlier responses said that it was a person (and it's not Edmond Haley either :D )

does he have anything to do with the underground railroad?

or is it someone responcible for the railroad going through?

No, it does not...

Abe Lincoln

Nope, someone guessed him earlier...not correct

someone who has his picture on money...maybe

Yes, yes it is...

OK, now that it is officially a "hot topic"...I'll give a small hint:

The Eisenhower guess has been the closest in that a lot of what was stated in the reasoning fits this person as well...however, I never said it was an American...

;)

my father was poisoned

my wife was taken

But still I amassed

an army unshaken

my true name you mayn't know

but my title you should

with these added clues

solve this, you could

another epiphany!!!! (but i think it's not right)

maybe the all seeing eye? (on the top of the pyramid in $ bills)

I'm sure you've heard

No one's greater than me -it's all seeing

I'm the best there has been

In the whole of history

Ironworker by name

and work it I did.

I used it for my glory

and from me, many hid. -it's all seeing, but ppl hid, i guess

I see millions of commuters -can see lots of stuff

to and from many lands.

My face can be seen -the eye

in million's of hands. -lots of ppl have $

No one knows

where I am right now -it doesn't actually see all

Solve this riddle

and to you I will bow

my father was poisoned

my wife was taken

But still I amassed -these are probably about the person the eye belonged to

an army unshaken

my true name you mayn't know -it's not it's 'name'

but my title you should -the all seeing eye is a title

with these added clues

solve this, you could -these added lines gave me that idea! (maybe it's actually the person the eye is supposed to belong to(but i dont know who that is))

Alas, that is incorrect...let's review what we know:

Eisenhower was probably the closest guess because of many of the reasonings. It is an actual historical figure...not an image/thought/concept/etc... It is someone that is on currency... and it doesn't necessarily have to be American currency. It has nothing to do with the Underground Railroad. It is not Abe Lincoln, Jesus, George Washington, God, Chuck Norris, Joseph Smith Jr., Benjamin Franklin, George Stephenson, Julius Caesar, Hitler, Eisenhower, President Johnson, President Jackson, or Edmond Haley
