How women contributed to the Renaissance and how the Renaissance lead to improving women’s lives?
It was 1986, and in New York Harbor, workers were constructing the statue of liberty. Eight hundred miles away, another great American symbol was about to be unveiled. Like many people who change history, John Pemberton, an Atlanta pharmacist, was inspired by simple curiosity. One afternoon, he stirred up a fragrant, caramel-colored liquid and, when it was done, he carried it a few doors down to Jacobs’ Pharmacy. Here, agreed- this new drink was something special. So Jacobs’ pharmacy put it on sale for five cents a glass. Like many people who change history, John pemberton, an Atlant pharmacist, was inspired by simple curiosity. One afternoon, he stirred up a fragrant, caramel-colored liquid and, when it was done, he carried it a few doors down to Jacobs’ Pharmacy who all agreed-this new drink was something special. So Jacobs’ Pharmacy. Here the mixture was combined with carbonated water and sampled by customer who all agreed- this new drink was special. So Jacobs’ Pharmacy put on sale for five cents a glass. Pemberton’s bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, named the mixture Coca-ColaÂ®, and wrote it out in his distinct script. To this day, Coca-Cola is written the same way. In the first year, Pemberton sold just 9 glasses of Coca-Cola a day. A century later, The Coca-Cola Company has produced more than 10 billion gallons of syrup. Unfortunately for Pemberton, he died in 1888 without realizing the success of the beverage he had created. Over the course of three years, 1888-1891, Atlanta businessman Asa Griggs Candler secured rights to the business for a total of about $2,300. Candler would become the Company’s first president, and the first to bring real vision to the business and the brand. http://heritage.coca-cola.com/ COMPANY MISSION, VISION AMD VALUES: Our Mission Our Roadmap starts with our mission, which is enduring.
