Johnny Appleseed

"Select Good Seeds and Plant Them in Good Ground"

Series: Americans—The Spirit of a Nation

By Richard Worth

John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed, crossed the Allegheny Mountains during the dead of winter in 1797. Trudging through the snow and braving the cold wind, Chapman was headed for Warren, Pennsylvania. He had a plan to plant apple trees. He believed the settlers on the frontier would need them. Over the next fifty years, Johnny Appleseed planted many apple nurseries and became an iconic figure to American settlers on the frontier.
