With the decision, following the World War, to organize two National Guard Divisions in each of the nine Corps Areas the 43rd Division came into being.

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. The three brigades of the Division were allocated so that the control could be centralized to the greatest extent. The 85th Brigade was allocated entirely to Connecticut, and consisted of the 102nd and 169th Infantry Regiments. The 86th Brigade was allocated to Maine and Vermont, and consisted of the 103rd Infantry (Maine) and the 172nd Infantry (Vermont). The 68th Field Artillery was allocated to Maine, Rhode Island, and Connecticut and consisted of the 103rd and 152nd Regiments (75-mm.) and the 192nd (155-mm. Howitzer).
