March 11, 1845: Died, Johnny Appleseed. His real name was John Chapman, and he really did travel all over the countryside planting apple trees. It was a business: he got the seeds, and often the use of the land for free, and sold the trees to whoever would buy them. Since the trees were raised from seeds -- not grafting -- they were unsuitable for eating, but excellent for making hard cider.

He's legend now, but Johnny Appleseed was as odd as his myth. Click the image for more info, then go eat an Apple.

John Chapman (September 26, 1774 – March 18, 1845), also known as Johnny Appleseed, was an American pioneer nurseryman who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. He became an American legend while still alive, largely because of his kind and generous ways, his great leadership in conservation, and the symbolic importance he attributed to apples.
