Johnny Appleseed was actually a real person who was born on this day 245 years ago in Leonmister, Massachusetts.  His real name was John Chapman, but he earned his nickname by working as an orchardist [which is still a profession today], wandering about the frontier – back then most of Pennsylvania and Ohio was considered wildland.  He would plant the trees, establish a land claim, then circle back later and make hard cider – all of which draws a very different picture than the whimsical wandering eccentric of folklore.



I wonder what John Chapman would think about being remembered as Johnny Appleseed?
