Field review by the editors.

Ocean Springs, Mississippi

Doug Mansfield's collection of 16,000 war-related features items used from World War I to Iraq. Highlights include a rare paratrooper dummy used on D-Day, one of only two Kodak battlefield darkrooms in existence, and 56 lady dummies dressed in various uniforms -- reportedly the largest such fashion collection in the Southeast.
