Henry Knox – WCS


Henry Knox fought in every campaign of George Washington’s army. He rose in rank from Major to Colonel, to Brigadier to Major General. He mastered the art of fortification and the transportation and use of artillery on campaign and in battle. He met fellow gunner Alexander Hamilton with whom he became fast friends for life. Knox was almost captured in the battles for New York but was rescued through the services of Aaron Burr, who would kill Hamilton in a duel in the next century.

Knox commanded the crossing of the Delaware for the successful attack on Trenton in 1776 and set up an officer and artillery school 1779, which became the genesis of the military academy at West Point. Knox built armories that supplied the American armies throughout the war, and he positioned the American artillery at the Siege of Yorktown; they were instrumental in delivering the decisive victory to General Washington.
