Mansfield is located in DeSoto Parish in northwest Louisiana, near the Sabine River and Texas border. A Visitor Center and several monuments interpret the fighting there. Pleasant Hill, the site of the second most important battle in the Red River Campaign fought the day after the battle at Mansfield, is located to the south, approximately 18 miles. The key area of the Battle of Pleasant Hill is in private hands. Some of the Confederate dead from the Mansfield battle are interred in local cemeteries in Minden and Keachi.
