New England’s Rockport, Cape Ann, is a charming coastal town, fall in love. 

Emerson’s line “the shot heard round the world” is a fixture in the lore of the American Revolution,[citation needed] and the opening stanza is inscribed beneath the Daniel Chester French Minute Man statue dedicated (along with a replica of the Old North Bridge) at the 1875 commemoration of the original battle.[14] “Concord Hymn” established Emerson as a poet; he was previously known as a lecturer and essayist.[11] Emerson biographer Robert Richardson notes the phrase has since become the most famous line he ever wrote.[15] Concord’s centennial celebration of Emerson’s birth in 1903 ended with a singing of the hymn.[1] Wikipedia

“Concord Hymn”, written for Concord’s centennial celebration

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare,
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.
