Martin Van Buren Bates, known as the "Kentucky Giant" among other nicknames, was a Civil War-era American famed for his incredibly large size.  Though born an infant of normal size into a family of normal-sized people in Letcher County, Kentucky, he is said to at one time have been 7 feet 11 inches in height.   His ferocity in battle, aided by his imposing figure, made him legendary, with Union soldiers telling tales of a "Confederate giant who's as big as five men and fights like fifty".
