The US Army Field Artillery traces its history back to the Corps of Artillerists and Engineers, the only regular troops retained in the service of the new United States following the revolution. Many of the regiments active today were organized before or during the Civil War. The Field Artillery was organized in individual battalions until the late 1950s, when a regimental system with multiple battalions per regiment was established. The Field Artillery continues to provide direct artillery support to Infantry, Armor and Cavalry units
