A hundred years after the death of Frank Furness a commemoration was held in his honor at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia. Hear about his architecture, his service during the Civil War and receiving the Metal of Honor. PLEASE TURN UP VOLUME. Furness worked with John Fraser and Richard Morris Hunt; influenced Louis Sullivan. During the Civil War he was a Captain in PA cavalry (Rush's Lancers), fought at Battle of Gettysburg and the Battle of Trevilian Station, Virginia where his gallantry was recognized with the Metal of Honor.
