Question:

I attended a lecture by David Allen Lambert on the Civil War.  He mentioned a clue to determine the status of a veteran in a 20th century census - can you refresh my memory?

Answer:

The 1910 U.S. Census will tell you if your were a veteran of the U.S. or Confederate Army or Navy.  The 1930 Census asked if you were a veteran of any war up until 1930, including "WW" for the First World War.
