How would I draw a grid with dots on specified intersections? The image below shows the basic idea:

GridLines and Ticks should prove useful.

Graphics[{PointSize[Large], Point[{10, 20}]}, 
 GridLines -> {Range[0, 25], Range[0, 25]},
 Ticks -> {{{5, "A"}, {10, "B"}, {15, "C"}, {20, "D"}}, Automatic},
 PlotRange -> { {0, 25}, {0, 25}}, Axes -> True]
