When people remember history's most important figures, they rarely consider their heights. Television shows and documentaries can barely get the important details right—as evidenced by the History Channel's very inaccurate depiction of the Sons of Liberty—let alone the inessential information about their statures. The heights of notable figures from the past do seem surprising, though. Looking at modern celebrities who share historical figures' heights helps put the distorted mess that is history into perspective.
