Mansfield is a small town in western Louisiana, part of the Shreveport metropolitan area. The town formed around a female college established there in 1855, the first women's college west of the Mississippi River. Unfortunately, the school closed during the Civil War, during which the Battle of Mansfield was fought here, won by Confederate general Richard Taylor.
Today, Mansfield is known for its Civil War history and current state of poverty.
