Pleasant-Hill is a historical village of approximately 700 residents in Sabine Parish, Louisiana. The area is famous for The Battle of Pleasant Hill, which was fought on April 9, 1864 during the Red River Campaign of the American Civil War. The battle was between Union forces led by Major General Nathaniel P. Banks and Confederate forces, led by Major General Richard Taylor. The battle was essentially a continuation of the previous days Battle of Mansfield, fought nearby, which ended around sunset due to darkness. On April 9th, Taylor launched an ambitious assault against the newly reinforced Federals at Pleasant Hill and had the upper hand before Brig. Gen. Thomas J. Churchills Arkansas division was flanked on its right and repulsed. After the battle, the Federals remained demoralized and unconfident in their commander - they retreated to Grand Ecore, and from there to Alexandria. Officially, the battle was a Union victory - as the Confederates were successfully driven from the field. However, because Banks and his army had retreated so soon afterwards, many argued over who had really won the battle. In 1864, Pleasant Hill was situated about two miles north of the current village of Pleasant Hill. The new village moved in order to be closer to the railroad. Today, the site of the old village is referred to as "Old Town" or "Old Pleasant Hill."
