Here is a museum located in southern Mississippi used during WWII to train two divisions of the army and housed a POW camp for German prisoners.

 

www.vandorn.org

 

Check it out see what you all think. In the photo section there is a soldier shooting a rifle it is either a M1917 or a M1903A3 Springfield I have not looked at it that close yet.
