(September 26, 1774 – March 18, 1845), better known as Johnny Appleseed,
was an American pioneer nurseryman who introduced apple trees to large
parts of Pennsylvania, Ontario, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, as well as the
northern counties of present-day West Virginia. He became an American
legend while still alive, due to his kind, generous ways, his leadership in
conservation, and the symbolic importance he attributed to apples.
