The 63rd Division was activated on June 15, 1943 and consisted of three infantry regiments: the 253rd, 254th and 255th. The Division was sent to France in December 1944 and the three infantry divisions were reassigned to various divisions of the 6th Army Group. The 253rd was attached to the 44th Infantry Division; the 254th was attached to the 3rd Infantry Division; and the 255th was attached to the 100th Infantry Division. In September 1945, the 63rd Infantry Division returned to the U.S. and was deactivated. The collection contains 16 cds that contain Division and Regimental histories, newspapers, photographs, orders, and morning reports.
