Shayne Davidson was so inspired by an antique photo album featuring 17 Black soldiers from the Civil War, he decided to research, create a family tree, write a biography, and draw life-sized, colored pencil portraits of the men.  Davidson’s creative kick resulted in the book and exhibit, Civil War Soldiers: Discovering the Men of the 25th United States Colored Troop.  The exhibit will be available to the public everyday with the exception of Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Montpelier Arts Center in Laurel.
