JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — Coca-Cola is celebrating Mississippi’s bicentennial with commemorative glass bottles.
Coca-Cola was invented and first served in Atlanta. However, in 1894, Mississippi businessman Joseph Biedenharn first bottled Coca-Cola in Vicksburg.
That was about 70 years after Mississippi earned statehood.
The company created a limited edition 8-ounce glass Coca-Cola bottle to celebrate the state’s 200 years.
Gov. Bryant was there at the unveiling Wednesday morning at the State Capitol.
