The lack of marksmanship skills during the Spanish-American War persuaded Congress to pass a Congressional Act in 1903 to give federal funding to state militias to provide marksmanship instruction camps and practice rifle ranges. In 1906 the Ohio State Legislature appropriated $25,000 to purchase over 300 acres of land for a state rifle range and camp. By the summer of 1907 Camp Perry Training Site was home to a 200 yd., a 600 yd., and a 800 yd. rifle range. By 1909, Camp Perry had evolved into the largest and best rifle ranges in the United States. During World War I, Camp Perry was used as a training center for officers and marksmanship instructors. During World War II, Camp Perry was used as a new recruit reception center, and in 1943 became a prisoner of war camp housing 2500 German and 200 Italian POW's.
