It was one of the scenes of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, the initial conflict in the American Revolutionary War.

Featured were Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Amos Bronson Alcott, Louisa May Alcott and Henry David Thoreau, all of whose homes are preserved in modern-day Concord.

The name Musketaquid was an Algonquian word for "grassy plain", fitting the area's low-lying marshes and kettle holes. Native Americans had cultivated corn crops there; the rivers were rich with fish and the land was lush and arable. However, the area was largely depopulated by the smallpox plague that swept across the Americas after the arrival of Europeans.When using our United States online trip maker to make an itinerary online, Concord holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
