JACKMAN, Maine --It took some searching, but 11 eighth-graders from Forest Hills Middle School pinpointed a long-forgotten landmark: a World War II prisoner of war camp 15 miles south of town at Spencer Lake.
"It was a big secret that there was a camp out there," said teacher Deborah Achey, whose students did research on camps built in Maine to house German captives.
