Freebies For Wednesday September 26

Happy Johnny Appleseed Day! Johnny Appleseed Day honors one of America's great legends. Johnny Appleseed was a real person. John Chapman was among the American settlers who were captivated by the movement west across the continent. As Johnny Appleseed travelled west, he planted apple trees along the way, and sold trees to settlers. With every apple tree that was planted, the legend grew.

A Little About the Legend:

    John Chapman (aka Johnny Appleseed) was born on September 26, 1774.
    He was a nurseryman who started out planting trees in western New York and Pennsylvania.
    During the life of John Chapman, the "West" was places like Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois.
    John Chapman was a deeply religious person He was known to preach during his travels.
    According to legend, Johny Appleseed led a simple life and wanted little. He rarely accepted money and often donated any money he received.
    It is believed that he died on March 11, 1845, from what was referred to as the "winter plague". The actual date of his death has been disputed.

There is a lot of "legend" in stories written about Johny Appleseed. By it's definition, over the years, legends grow bigger than life. It also appears that there is some link between Johny Appleseed and very early Arbor Day celebrations.
