kasi, the "dreamer" is a word that is used as a symbol for future military leaders...so I also agree with jhomer95. Because Sandburg wrote this at the beginning of WWI...one of the military leaders was von Bismark.

I agree with sky, but he is only partially right. The poem was written before WWII, but it was written at the beginning of WWI. It's more likely that itís Otto von Bismark, not Hitler.
