The Henry Knox chapter was organized on April 21, 2012, by Organizing Regent Marla Suter.  The organizing meeting was held in Valley Chapel at the Marion County Park Historical Village in Knoxville, Iowa, and was attended by the state organizing secretary and the state registrar.

The name Henry Knox was selected in honor of Revolutionary War hero General Henry Knox, who was considered a master military strategist and fought in numerous battles including Bunker Hill, Long Island, Trenton, Assunpink Creek, Princeton, Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, and the Sieges of Boston and Yorktown.

Members & guests at memorial
On July 25, 2021, the 271st anniversary of the birth of General Henry Knox, the Henry Knox chapter dedicated an America 250! Revolutionary War Patriot marker on the Marion County Courthouse square in Knoxville, IA. This marker was placed to commemorate the men and women who achieved American independence. patriotmarker

The dedication ceremony featured guest speakers from the community, members of the SAR color guard team, patriotic music from a bagpiper and a community reception inside the Courthouse following the event. It was very well attended by the local community and by DAR members from across the state and afforded a perfect opportunity to Shine a Light on our Revolutionary War Patriots.
