Concord, MA

Concord is a small town in north-eastern Massachusetts. The area was originally inhabited by native Algonquin peoples. In 1635, a trade was made between settlers and the local tribes for the area. The transaction was so peaceful that the town was named "Concord" as a result.

The Battle of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775 was the initial conflict in the Revolutionary War. Today, this battle has been immortalized in literary works like the "Concord Hymn" and "Paul Revere's Ride".

Concord was the home of the Transcendentalist literary movement, started by and centered around Ralph Waldo Emerson. Among the Transcendentalist circle were the likes of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Bronson Alcott, and Henry David Thoreau.

The Transcendentalists, and especially Emerson, wrote often of the sublime beauty of nature. They were certainly inspired by Concord's landscape.
