These are but a small collection of photos I recently shot at the Vicksburg National Military Park and U.S.S. Cairo Museum. To visit the second largest battlefield outside Gettysburg that was so important to American history was a privilege. To see the first armored battleship was also a privilege. It opened my mind to so many perspectives and gave me increased knowledge that I’ll be able to carry and share with others. One quote that stood out to me from an unknown soldier was, “If someone would have just asked us the war would have been over in an hour.” Powerful!

If you like Coca-Cola this museum is a great display of history and how it was bottled for the very first time. To see and learn about the process really makes one appreciate the hard work and creativity of those who came before us. It definitely wasn’t easy in the beginning to get Coke off of the fountain and into bottles. The first cap was similar to a champagne bottle and when one pulled it made a popping sound. That’s how the term “Soda Pop” came into being. That’s just the beginning of what you will learn. Coca-Cola was also invented by Confederate Lieutenant John Pemberton who was also a pharmacist. Mr. Pemberton even added cocaine to the formula for the first 17 years of production until the US government started regulating it. The museum is an awesome place to visit.
