Giants in these days

--Among a body of troops who passed through this city on Friday night, was one company of unusually tall soldiers. Their ranks contained but three men under six feet in height, and their file leader is said to measure seven feet two inches. His companions in arms looked like school boys beside him.--Nashville Gazette.
