The 963rd Field Artillery Battalion originated as a component of the Connecticut Militia, which consisted of companies formed in 1639 to protect the original colonies. These companies were in turn organized in the year 1739, into the 3rd and 4th Infantry Regiments of the Connecticut Militia, which remained in colonial service until 1776. In that year they became part of the State Militia of Connecticut and served during the Revolutionary War in such historic campaigns as those around New York, The Danbury Raid, and the Battle of Saratoga.
