Got called back to work, and was no longer free to show up at the radio station during the local talk show.
Good chance of getting laid off again in a few weeks, I can pursue that again.

Here is a revision where I removed a sizable portion of content to simplify it more.

Thoughts welcomed.

This poster is great work, yet I am lost as to how you would intent to use it for the "titled" task's at hand............and here is why...(quick&dirty)

(speaking from a great deal of successful experience) School's and/or Library's et al
Best to stick with "history & heritage" ONLY.........(photo's-graphic's and verbage)
the "sales" pitch to the marksmenship side is an easy transition ...LATER...after your foot is in the door.
These organizations, Don't let firearms get involved in anything .....
American or Colonial history, one "assumes", automatically that :black powder-firelock's-bullets even DEATH or SHOOTING of a human, would be seen, discussed and/or used as a visual aid!

KNOW your target audience and "track" them......their minds are easy to influance later from the flank

my 2 cents...............whats working here in over regulated- politically correct California

Action!
Suspense!
Romance!
Come hear the story...

We live in a fast food generation so we need to keep it simple and use simple language.  Like asminuteman said, we need to hook 'em then let the presentation do the rest.

Now the question arises - do we have truth in advertising?  Considering the events of April 19, 1775, is there action?  You bet!  How about suspense?  Although we know how things turned out, the militia certainly didn't and I'm sure many a Regular was wondering if they would make it back to Boston alive after General Heath put his plan into action (there's that word again).  Romance?  I think Isaac and Hannah Davis qualify as do the courting love birds encountered in the first strike.  Put passionate Appleseed instructors in the front of the room telling the stories and it will make Gone with the Wind look like Leave it to Beaver reruns.

Also may I suggest simplifying the pictures?  Just put one or two very eye-catching pictures.  Perhaps the battle at the North Bridge and a picture of one of the women.  Need to catch the eyes of both genders.

I applaud your efforts to put together a useful poster.  Thanks for taking this project on.

Just my two bits worth,

- ShadowMan

I like it, but I'm already sold on Appleseed. Uncle Sam knows Americans have a short attention span.
