Stretch Your Mind (6/18/10)

Here is another quiz question for you to consider (the answer will be posted on 6/22/10):

In doing some research in the US Census last week, I noted that one of my ancestors reported himself as a veteran and the word “Box” was in the space to indicate the war or expedition he served in.

Questions: What census was I researching? What does the notation “Box” mean? Why was his being a veteran so special in this case?
