Once upon a time on September 26, 1771, a little boy named John Chapman was born. He would later go by the name, Johnny Appleseed.
Once Johnny grew up, he decided he wanted to go explore the great country he lived in; The United States of America. This was over 200 Years ago, so he started his journey on foot; barefoot to be exact.
Everywhere Johnny went, he carried a big sack of apple seeds! He walked thousands of miles planting apple seeds along the way.
Shortly after he started his journey around the US, people began to refer to him as Johnny Appleseed.
Johnny Appleseed was not only know for planting his apple seeds, he was also known for being very kind a giving. Johnny would often give people in need the clothes right off his back! He even wore a metal pot on his head for a hat!
Johnny Appleseed spent his entire life planting apples and spreading kindness through helping others, helping animals, and doing good deeds.
