    Map Antique American Revolution Battle Map

    Hello Folks,

    This is my first post to this amazing forum. I have benefited greatly from all the tutorials and spent a lot of time learning tricks to develop the attached map.

    I have developed a novelty/souvenir map for visitors to Lexington and Concord Massachusetts. The idea was to depict the events around the first battles of the revolution in a fun and engaging way. I tried to emulate the style of map makers from that era to give the illusion that it could have been created just after the war. The idea is to combine the artistry/style of this antique map http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Le..._of_Boston.jpg with the history and details of these maps http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Concord_Retreat.png...I'm at the limit of my creative and technical skills and I lay it out now for more experienced feedback.

    I began the map in PS 5 and upgrading to Elements 8 for some the text arcing features. I would love to get into CS but I will wait until I get a faster computer this spring. I look forward to any advice/feedback/tips

    Thanks,
    Pete
