Letter: Add apology to existing historical markers 

November 30, 2023

Covering the signs is a cowardly denial of historical and cultural wrongdoing. What would serve us better and more importantly penitential would be an acknowledging addendum. For example:  

We the current settlers of Concord  

regretfully acknowledge the cruel indifference 

 of the early settlers toward the lives and culture of the 

 the original occupant-owners of this land. 

In addition, this should be something the town votes for; not the decision of a few “selected” individuals.
