On their 1953 road trip (about which I am writing a book), Harry and Bess Truman stopped at a service station in Frederick, Maryland, where Harry had a Coke. That bottle of Coke was saved by the station manager, whose son later donated it to the Historical Society of Frederick County, where it resides today. I saw the Truman Coke bottle this week when I was in Frederick doing some research, and the museum was kind enough to let me photograph it.
