Hi. I'm John Chapman, or Johnny Appleseed.
I was a preacher in Tennessee, which taught me to love the earth, especially apples.
So I left my home in Tennessee, headed out west, and started planting apple seeds. I made lots of friends by planting my trees...
When my friends fought, I would intervene. But I learned that if there was one thing that brought people together, it was apples.
The farther west I went, the more I realized that we needed each other.
I did my best to help my friends see that.
