It’s the birthday of Johnny Appleseed.
In American folklore, Johnny Appleseed (26 September 1774 – 18 March 1845), is associated with apples, pioneers, and the ‘unclaimed frontier’. He’s right up there in the pantheon with Davy Crocket and Daniel Boone. He spent the first half of the 1800s planting apple trees in Ohio, and has become part of American legend for it.
