Camp Perry Photographs
Caption
A lack of soldiers with marksmanship skills in the Spanish-American War led to the founding of Camp Perry in 1906. Camp Perry grew to be one of the largest rifle ranges in the United States. It was used to train soldiers during World War I and World War II. The camp also housed German and Italian prisoners of war during World War II. Later, Camp Perry became a training facility for the Ohio National Guard. It also hosts the National Rifle Matches sponsored by the National Rifle Association (NRA) (Om3074_001).
