The Battle of Mansfield, LA, formed part of the Red River Campaign, when Union forces were attempting to occupy the state capital Shreveport. The Confederate commander Major General Richard Taylor chose Mansfield as the place where he would make his stand against the advancing Union army under Nathaniel Banks.

Taylor concentrated his forces at Sabine Crossroads, knowing that reinforcements were nearby. Banks prepared for a fight, though his own army was not fully assembled. After a brief resistance, the Union army was routed by the Confederates, consisting mainly of units from Louisiana and Texas, reportedly strengthened by hundreds of men breaking parole.

Banks’ mission was to destroy the Confederate army under Taylor and capture Shreveport, LA, thus seizing control of the Red River, and further tightening the Federals’ grip on the Confederacy.
