What you might not know about Henry Knox is a lot.

He was there. At Bunker Hill. At Trenton. Yorktown. Brandywine. At Valley Forge. Henry Knox was there. He was Chief of Artillery. He was the one who yelled: “Fire!” He was right in the thick of it.

He 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 did risk his neck to make it possible.

Henry Knox was somebody, still is somebody, you totally should know.
