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. Since the trees were raised from seeds -- not grafting -- they were unsuitable for eating, but excellent for making hard cider.

He's legend now, but Johnny Appleseed was as odd as his myth. Click the image for more info, then go eat an Apple.
