Map making for book

The final stages of editing my new non-fiction Civil and Indian War book, “Rough Enough” have involved the creation of a couple of maps so that readers will have some idea of the Civil War forts and training camps in the Boston area and also will have a reference to look at when following Richard Clow’s travels on the frontier.  I may also do a small map of the Union and Confeserate forts (outposts) around Petersburg so that readers are able to refresh their memories of the positioning of the Union and Confederate troops during the final month of the war.  It’s a fun project, but very time consuming to get the data into a form that will be both accurate, visually pleasing and educational for the readers.  Fortunately I have found a really good graphic artist who can take my ideas and bring them to full fruition. So we’ll see how they look when they are on the final pages.

  1. I’ve often wanted to draw my own maps for my site when I can not locate an official one, but never knew quite how to go about it.
