Today we stayed at the RV Park. Yesterday we visited the Coca-Cola-Museum. Mr. Biedenharn, a German immigrant, had a candy shop In Vicksburg. In the 19th century, it was common that a candy shop or a drugstore sold open drinks, which they produced
from a syrup together with carbonated water. Coca-Cola was such a syrup too. But Mr. Biedenharn had the idea to sell not only in the city but in the countryside too. Therefore he started to bottle Coca-Cola in 1864. He was the first in the world to do this
and opened with that a huge business. Mr. Biedenharn had seven sons. Almost all of them opened Coca-Cola bottling companies in the States of Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. The picture shows the building, where the bottling of Coca-Cola was invented. It's
now a museum.
