Johnny Appleseed was a pioneer who planted apple trees across America.

John Chapman was born on September 26, 1774 in Leominster Massachusetts.  As a young boy, Johnny loved nature.  Even the animals sensed his gentleness.  When John was old enough, he set out to explore the frontier of the west.  Johnny would share apple seeds with the settlers so that more apple trees would grow.  Johnny would always lend a helping hand to the settlers he would meet and he would always give them apple seeds and the people began using the name Johnny Appleseed.  As time went on and the settlers told stories of his great journeys planting apple seeds and trees throughout the western frontier.
