Harrisonburg is a village in and the parish seat of Catahoula Parish, Louisiana, United States. The population averages around 780 community members.
Fort Beauregard, which is located a fourth of a mile outside the village, was a Confederate stronghold during the American Civil War. In 1863, the fort successfully defended Harrisonburg from the attack of four Union gunboats coming from the Black River to the Ouachita River. After four days of bombardment, little damage was done, and the gunboats retired down river.
The village of Harrisonburg formerly stages reenactments at Fort Beauregard, also known as Fort Hill, each year.
