Harold McCauley created this historical Revolutionary War image of a Minuteman using coded communication to alert the Colonial forces of British troop movement as cover art for the May/June 1975 issue of Signal magazine, the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) trade publication. AFCEA is a non-profit group which emerged from the Signal Corp after World War II that serves the information technology and intelligence fields.

The published cover features an overlay of satellites that draws a direct parallel between the significance of military intelligence and communication in the 1700s and the late 20th century.
