Charles Frederick Fisher (December 26, 1816 – July 21, 1861) was an American attorney, legislator, engineer, and soldier from Rowan County, North Carolina who during the American Civil War became the Colonel commanding the 6th North Carolina Regiment. Fisher's gallantry leading a charge on a Union Army battery at the First Battle of Bull Run cost him his life and made him an early hero of the Confederacy; Fort Fisher was named for him.
