Bill Clinton Reads ‘Concord Hymn’ by Ralph Waldo Emerson

In honor of National Poetry Month, we’ve dug up a video of President Bill Clinton reading the poem “Concord Hymn” by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

President Clinton recorded this video for “The Favorite Poem Project” in 1999. This project was founded by the 39th poet laureate of the United States, Robert Pinsky. Altogether, 50 short video documentaries were made for this project.

Emerson wrote this poem in 1836 for the memorial of the Battle of Concord. This monument commemorated those who lost their lives in that famous battle of the American Revolution. What’s your favorite Emerson poem?
