The Real Johnny Appleseed

If you’re like me, you probably grew up hearing a charming story about John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, in which he planted apples across America so that no one would ever go hungry again. But there’s a little detail the Disney movie and all the kids’ books got wrong. His apples weren’t for eating. They were for liquor.
