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.  General Knox was also the first Secretary of War serving under President George Washington.  It was in General Knox’s memory that the City of Knoxville was named.
