Johnny Appleseed Day Activities

Johnny Appleseed is a man who planted apple (and pear) trees across the America to share not only their beauty and shade, but to provide food for those in need.¬† Johnny was born in Massachusetts¬† on September 26, 1774 with the given name John Chapman. His father served as a Minuteman and fought at Bunker Hill. Then, in 1797, Johnny shows up in Pennsylvania with apple seeds in hand.¬† Although his stories have grown into legendary and he didn’t make it through the entire United States, Appleseed did plant apple trees from West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois,¬† Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin. This American folk hero was said to be a kind man who traveled barefoot, dressed simply, and wore a tin pot hat that he actually used to prepare his daily dinner.
