The town of Concord is located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, along Route 2. It is 19 miles of Boston in the West. The total area of Concord is 25.9 square miles, out of which 3.75% is water.

The area was originally called Musketaquid in Algonquian language that was spoken by the Native Americas living in the territory. After the American Revolutionary War, Concord became the literary center of the newly established country. Famous writers were working there such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, or Nathaniel Hawthorne.

History

Before the settlers, Native Americans cultivated the land where Concord lies today. They mainly dealt with growing corn and fishing. However, as the Europeans arrived at America, the number of Native Americans significantly drop due to the smallpox plague Europeans brought with themselves. The first settlers came to Concord in 1635, led by Peter Bulkley and Major Simon Willard. They negotiated with the remnants of the native tribe in the territory.

The Battle of Lexington and Concord had an important historic role in the American War of Independence. A force of British Army regulars marched into Concord and captured a cache of arms that was formerly reported to them. As a reaction the colonists started to gather. Following a skirmish near Lexington, the British troops led by Lt. Col. Francis Smith attacked Concord. The colonists from the area successfully fought them back, forcing them to retreat. This event marked the start of the Siege of Boston and the start of the Revolutionary War.

Government

Like most of the townsin Massachusetts, Concord is governed by the Open Town Meeting system. The legislative branchis represented by the Annual Town Meeting that is open to all citizens of Concord but only registered voters may vote. The executive branch is representedby the five-member Board of Selectmen. There is a Town Clerk who supports the work of the Open Town Meeting and the Board of Selectmen.

The Concord Municipal Light Plant provides electricity throughout the town, ensuring to keep the rates low. The Concord Public Works provides water to most of Concord, and approximately one-third of the town is connected to the town sewer.

The current population density of Concord is 680 people per square mile.

The median income for households was $129,960 in 2013. Approximately 3.9% of the population was below the poverty line.

We have said nothing thus far about the well- known and well-advertised effect of excess water in reducing strength of cured concrete. Countless tests have shown that the amount of water in a concrete mixture over and above what is actually required for proper handling detracts much more from the strength than leaving out the same amount of cement. In other words, the very common practice of over wetting mixtures is equivalent to throwing away some of the money that has been paid for good cement. If a mixture lacks workability, it cannot be remedied by adding more water—this only makes a bad matter worse. It does not seem necessary to say very much about the time of mixing or the amount of mixing which is required in making good concrete. Since one of the first requirements of good concrete is that it shall be uniform and homogeneous throughout, the minimum amount of mixing is naturally that which will evenly distribute the ingredients throughout the mixture. By the time this condition is reached the aggregate will be properly coated with cement. However, somewhat longer mixing is beneficial because plasticity or workability is thereby increased. This is due to the gradual absorption of water by the cement particles, a chemical action which converts the dry cement powder into glue and turns a safe bet that the mixture is too wet. The improvement in workability by adding excess water is apparent only, for segregation of the aggregates is thereby increased, and while the concrete may appear to go into the forms more readily, it goes in less uniformly, and we have in the finished product all the characteristics of poor concrete.
