In 1868, George Hull heard a sermon proclaiming this to be the land of Genesis and that when "There were Giants in the earth in those days", those Giants were in America. So Hull, scion of a wealthy New York family of cigar makers, set out to prove that sermon right. Thus was born the Cardiff Giant. The tale of Goliath and his creator is a witty, raucous, and bawdy tale of American life at its finest.
