Many is a town in and the parish seat of Sabine Parish, Louisiana, United States. The population was 2,706 at the 2000 census (a decrease of 183 from the 2000 Census). The town was named for James B. Many, the commander of nearby Fort Jesup.

On March 21, 1843, the Louisiana Legislature under the administration of Gov. Alexandre Mouton passed Act 46, which carved up the gigantic Natchitoches Parish creating new parishes, including Sabine, DeSoto and Bossier. Act 46 specified that the seat of government for the newly-created Sabine Parish would be named Many, in honor of Colonel James B. Many, one of the most popular and colorful officers serving at nearby Fort Jesup.

Col. Many became commander of Fort Jesup in 1823. There, he served as a genial host for many cotillions, band concerts, parties and gatherings which glamorized the social life of the post where civilians were always welcome. Legislative Act 46 further empowered the governor to appoint a sheriff and a parish judge for Sabine. The judge would be assigned to create 5-7 wards and to authorize an election for the selection of an equivalent number of police jurors.
