Wealthiest Americans ever

In honor of my New York Times induction day, a visualization of The Wealthiest Americans Ever. You think good ol' Billy would be there at the top of the list, worth $82 billion, there have been a few who have preceded the software giant e.g. John D. Rockefeller worth a crazy $192 billion. Just think how many Jack in the Box tacos you could buy with that kind of money.
