Today is the birthday of John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed. Yes, Virginia, Johnny Appleseed was a real guy!
Johnny Appleseed was, of course, the early American who traveled the continental United States, sowing apple seeds wherever he went. He was also a religious man who often preached during his wanderings. A lot of legends have grown up around Johnny Appleseed, but the basics are true!
