River model in the middle of the forest

In the hoodiest hood to ever hood, there is an abandoned mississippi river model in the middle of the forest built by Nazi POW. This place is HUGE and has not been super messed up by vandals, however due to the clay underground the model goes up and down like crazy in the most random places. I did not get very many pictures but this place is extremely interesting if any of you guys are into this type of thing.

It looks like you're linking to an image on gmail and it's not working. Maybe try uploading them to imgur.com and posting them or uploading them in your post?

"abandoned mississippi river model"

I don't understand what you mean. A landscape like a miniature train set, but of the Mississippi river?

Nor do I. POW camp?
Wouldn't that be a WW2 German POW camp; not all German soldier were Nazis? Sailors, pilots, soldiers, who interned here?
More historic background and info be nice.



Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

That's what it looks like -- http://www.atlasob...-river-basin-model

"In the 1940s, before computers were up to the task, when engineers needed needed to model a complex system, they would do just that, literally "modeling it," by building amazingly elaborate scale models."

Never heard of this before. Interesting.

I'm not that much of an expert in history, I'm thirteen years old for that matter.

This video from the guys at atlas Obscura gives you a ton of history on the location.

"Begun in 1943 during World War II, the US was understandably short on manpower, so the Army Corp used the manpower that was available, and which happened to be free - captured Italian and German prisoners of war. Many of the laborers were German engineers handpicked for the project, among them the "Afrika Korps," the German soldiers sent to fight in northern Africa."
