When Davidson set out to discover the ancestral history of his surname, he had no idea what he would encounter. On his journey, he discovered that people with the surname of Davidson have contributed to government and politics, business and economics, social sciences, religion, education, science and technology, music and entertainment, sports and recreation, and military history.

The research included here illustrates events ranging from the evolution of the English Crown and the building of North America to the American Revolution and the American Civil War.
