Pleasant Tackitt (or Tackett) (April 22, 1803 – February 7, 1886) (sometimes rendered as James Pleasant, but no official documents support this name) was a 19th-century politician, pioneer Methodist minister, stockman, teacher, farmer, Indian fighter, and Confederate officer.

Tackitt was a key figure in the history of Arkansas and North Texas, including a state representative in the Arkansas General Assembly.

Because of his battles with Indians in Texas, Tackitt became known as "the Fighting Parson".
