    Yes they were.And the guy that ended up owning Coke got it at a great price.He had already bought a portion of the company from the man that invented it, then went to his funeral and bought the rest of the company from his wife and son for 600 dollars.

    I watched a few minutes of that. It had a lot of dramatization/reenactment in it that kinda turned me off a little bit. But some interesting factoids.

    I remember studying/discussing them in 10th grade history. I think it was Kellogg who believed that sexual intercourse was physically harmful to people, and plenty of others had similar beliefs

    I've seen that show before, I thought it was pretty good.
    They also have "The cars that built America"
