Concord : Michelin's recommendations
Named in the 17C for the "concord" of peace established between the Indians and the settlers, the refined colonial town of Concord boasts a significant place in American history as well as a distinguished literary past. It was to Concord that British soldiers marched in April 1775 for the second major skirmish of the Revolutionary War, having first clashed with the colonial fighters, or "minutemen" at nearby Lexington. In the 19C, intellectuals and writers such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau and Bronson Alcott lived here.
