Excerpt from Johnny Appleseed: The Man Behind the Myth

John Chapman was one of America's authentic pioneer heroes, a contemporary of men such as Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett. He planted his first apple seeds as a boy about the time Washington was elected President and his last as an old man about the time Lincoln was elected to Congress. He moved into Ohio before Secretary of State James Monroe bought Louisiana from the French. By the time he died in Indiana in 1845, Texas had been annexed, the frontier had pushed across the Mississippi, and, out in California, Captain John Sutter had built his fort and was looking around for a likely location for a sawmill.

Yet, most people know less fact and more myth about John Chapman than about any other character in American history. Some think he was only a story or a folk tale; the rest, if they know him at all, know him as Johnny Appleseed.

This pamphlet presents some of the facts about John Chapman. It is primarily based on Robert Price's book, Johnny Appleseed, Man and Myth, published in 1954. In this pamphlet we will examine some of the myths and stories which sprang up around this frontiersman. We will try to trace the stories back to their sources to show where they originated, how they developed into myths, and how they have been perpetuated as "facts" in the Johnny Appleseed story. Some of these stories are very old. Many of them were first told around the hearths and campfires of the earliest settlers of Ohio, even while Johnny was still alive. By the time they came to be written down, the memories of the original storytellers had become a bit hazy, and their imaginations had begun to fill in the missing details.
