New Book Highlights “The Coca-Cola Trail,” Georgia History

The new book covers the lesser-known Georgia-based history of Coca-Cola (and other things!), including stories from Valdosta, Cedartown, and Griffin. 

Did you know that Coca-Cola once sold the rights to bottle Coca-Cola throughout 
the United States for $1.00.
And what about that Coca-Cola was first bottled in Vicksburg, Mississippi, not Atlanta…?
 
These are just two of the stories revealed in a newly published book, “The Coca-Cola Trail”, People and Places in the Historyof Coca-Cola. The new book covers the lesser-known Georgia-based history, including stories from Valdosta, Cedartown, and Griffin. 
 
The book details thirty chapters and over 200 pages of real stories of those pioneer 
bottlers; the challenges they faced, and how they were instrumental in creating 
the world’s most recognized brand. 
 
The “Trail” takes readers to places where Coca-Cola history is told through 
historic buildings, local museums, restored outdoor murals, memorabilia 
collections and related displays. 
 
The author, Larry Jorgensen, spent over two years interviewing Coca-Cola families and conducting extensive research in current and former Coca-Cola 
communities. His book is complete with historic photos and photos of modern day sites throughout each chapter.
