Brigadier-General Nathaniel Harrison Harris (August 22, 1834 – August 23, 1900) was a senior officer of the Confederate States Army who commanded infantry in the Eastern theater of the Civil War.

A lawyer in practice at the start of the Civil War, he mustered into Confederate service as Captain of Company C, 19th Mississippi Infantry in 1861. He eventually rose to Colonel in command of the regiment and fought at the Battles of 2nd Bull Run, Chancellorsville, Antietam and Gettysburg. In January 1864, he was promoted Brigadier General and was assigned to command a brigade in the Third Corps. He fought with gallantry at Spotsylvania, during the siege of Petersburg, during the Federal assaults on Forts Gregg and Whitworth. He was with the Army to the end, eventually surrendering at Appomattox.

After the War, he resumed his legal practice and later became the president of the Mississippi Valley & Ship Island Railroad.

He died on August 23, 1900 in Malvern, Worcestershire, England while on a business trip. His remains were cremated and later buried at Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, New York.  [jet] [ph:L]
