What You Don't Know About Henry Knox is a lot
An ordinary man who rose to face extraordinary circumstances
He was there. At Trenton. Brandywine. Valley Forge. And Yorktown. Henry Knox was there. He was Chief of Artillery. He was the one who yelled: “Fire!” For eight and a half long bloody years, he was there. Right in the thick of it.
Knox earned the respect and life-long friendship of George Washington, was his right-hand man throughout the war, stood beside him crossing the Delaware, and served in his cabinet. He may not have signed the Declaration of Independence, but he sure as heck did risk his neck to make it possible.
Henry Knox was somebody, still is somebody, you should totally know.
We invite you to explore for yourself the people and purpose behind the American Revolution. Our doors and grounds are open for you to touch, feel, smell, and even taste life as it was 242 years ago and imagine, in new ways, what it was like to participate in creating monumental, historic change.
This is Knox Museum. Very revolutionary.
