Francis Charles "Frank" High
Birth: Jun. 7, 1875
Yolo County
California, USA
Death: Dec. 13, 1966
Jackson County
Oregon, USA

Philippine Insurrection Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. Served as a Private, U.S. Army, Company G, 2nd Oregon Volunteer Infantry. Near San Isidro, Philippine Islands, on May 16, 1899, he with 21 other scouts charged across a burning bridge, under heavy fire, and completely routed 600 of the enemy who were entrenched in a strongly fortified position. Of the 12 Medals of Honor awarded to Oregonians since the medals were first issued in the Civil War, he was one of only three given to living individuals. The rest died because of their valor.  (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
