March 11, 1845: Died, Johnny Appleseed. His real name was John Chapman, and he really did travel all over the countryside planting apple trees. It was a business: he got the seeds, and often the use of the land for free, and sold the trees to whoever would buy them. Since the trees were raised from seeds -- not grafting -- they were unsuitable for eating, but excellent for making hard cider.
