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.

Johnny Appleseed His lifestyle and preferences were completely opposite the norms of frontier life. He was a vegetarian. He preferred to sleep outdoors and avoided towns and settlements. He thought it cruel to ride a horse, chop down a tree, or kill a rattlesnake. The stories go on. The settlers viewed these attitudes as preposterous and outrageous but very amusing.
