  6. I think that what people need to know about Henry Knox is that even though he probably wanted to give up he didn't and he persevered. He was also really brave.

  8. I think he was animal cruelty and at the same time he didn't give up. He Kept going and he risced the animals lives.

  9. That he never gave up even when the cannons started to sink he still kept going. And when the oxen and horse were stuck carrying the sleds in the mud he kept going. When one of the boats hit a rock he got the men to pull it out of the mud! So we should always know Henry Knox as a loyal patriot.
