    Coca-Cola once sold the rights to bottle Coca-Cola throughout the United States for $1.00.
    Coca-Cola was first bottle in Vicksburg, MS…not Atlanta.
    Just two of the many interesting chapters in the new book, “The Coca-Cola Trail”, People and Places in the History of Coca-Cola.

    Interesting read. However, I do not plan to stop drinking Coke. My mother put coke in my baby bottle as we crossed the desert and milk spoiled. I am now 81 years old. I work full time, am writing my tenth book, active in Church and am President of four different clubs. As for my health and looks, I would go up against a person in there sixties anytime. I drink at least one Coke a day.
