Robert Bullock (December 8, 1828 – July 27, 1905) was a United States Representative from Florida and a brigadier general in the Confederate States Army. He was born in Greenville, North Carolina where he attended the common schools.

Bullock entered the Confederate Army as captain in the 7th Florida Infantry in 1862 and served until the close of the War. He was promoted to lieutenant colonel in 1863 and to brigadier general in 1865 to date from November 29, 1864. Bullock took part in the Battle of Chickamauga, the Atlanta Campaign, and the Franklin-Nashville Campaign, where he was severely wounded.

He served as judge of probate court 1866-1868 and was a member of the Florida House of Representatives in 1879. He was again clerk of the circuit court of Marion County from 1881 to 1889 before being elected as a Democrat to the Fifty-first and Fifty-second Congresses (March 4, 1889-March 3, 1893).
