Johnny Appleseed's real name was John Chapman and he did indeed travel along the wilderness region as far west as Ohio scattering appleseeds that he had salvaged from Pittsburgh cider presses. He was also something of an evangelist and always carried a copy of the written works of an 18th-century religious philosopher, whose word, along with appleseeds, he passed on to the settlers. Whose word did Johnny Appleseed broadcast?
