Henry Knox (1750-1806) was a close friend of Washington's, who appointed him the country's first Secretary of War. He served in this position from 1789 to 1794 and helped establish a regular U.S. Navy and coastal fortifications. Knox also established the Continental Army's first school for artillery and officer training, which was the precursor to the military academy at West Point (established in 1802).
