The 6th North Carolina Infantry Reg't (C.S.A.) camped along the hills 100 yard south of here from Sept. 1861 to Mar. 1862 and named the site in honor of their fallen commander Col. Charles F. Fisher. The camp contained more than 100 winter huts housing nearly 750 soldiers and was often referred to as a "City in the Wilderness" by other soldiers camped along Powell's Creek—forming Gen. Johnston's Dept. of Northern Virgninia (Ref. 1861-62 Blockade of the Potomac River).
