Welcome to the home page for the Battle of Pleasant Hill Re-enactment. Our event commemorates one of the last Southern victories of the War Between the States and is held on the actual battlefield where Union and Confederate forces met on April 9, 1864. Please join us every year on the second full weekend of April to temper the historic events that took place in Pleasant Hill over 150 year’s ago. The Battle of Pleasant Hill Committee (BPHC) and the host units, the Trans Mississippi Volunteer Infantry (TMVI), look forward to seeing you all there!
