Everyone Agrees on the Meaning of concord
The roots of concord suggest the meaning "hearts together". At the very outset of the American Revolution, the town of Concord, Massachusetts, was the site of a famous battle—obviously not exactly in keeping with its name. It shares that name with the capital of New Hampshire and a few other towns and cities, and Concordia, the original Latin word for "concord", is the name of several Lutheran universities. Today concord is a rather formal term, probably most often used to mean a specific agreement; thus, two countries may sign a concord on matters that have led to trouble in the past.
