Brown Baggin' Thru History
April 3, Noon-1PM
Campus Martius Museum 601 Second Street Marietta, OH 45750
The legend of Johnny Appleseed is based upon the life of a real person. Born into a poor Yankee family on the eve of the American Revolution, the young John Chapman headed west in the last years of the 18th century. This talk recovers the life of the “real” Johnny Appleseed, teasing out fact from myth, and revealing the life of an extraordinary individual whose real story is more compelling than the myth which emerged in the years after his death.
This program is free thanks to the generous support of the Washington County Public Library.
