The combined histories of the units of the 43rd reads like a roll of honor of history of America, and the battle streamers amassed by these units reveal the farflung engagements in which men of the New England States have been called upon to defend their country's interests.
The 43rd was allocated to the States of Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and in each of the four states units were organized and federally recognized.
