The story of Johnny Appleseed is intimately tied to the domestication of America. In the early 1800s, he wandered what was then the frontier, planting apple seeds and helping to make the wilderness a home for the advancing pioneers. He planted over a hundred thousand square miles of apple orchards in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana.

You know the story of Johnny Appleseed is based on Bill Braskey, all except for the part about planting apple trees and not raping men.
