    "Exactly like him who came forward to speak his mind, so should I have did."

    Is this sentence gramatically correct?

    Re: "Exactly like him who came forward to speak his mind, so should I have did."

    I take it that you mean "have done".
    I think the sentence construction is, at best, clumsy.
    I should have done exactly like he did - came forward to speak his mind.

    'What about 'Just as he accomplished that, so have I decided to make the most out of my skills'?

    Re: "Exactly like him who came forward to speak his mind, so should I have did."

    How about

    "I should have stepped forward to speak my mind like he did."
