Picked up this biscuit box a while back.  It measures 10 1/2" tall, 23" in length and 15" wide.  The front appears to have the same advertising litho as the underside of the lid.  The lid itself is marked on the outside "US".  This is branded in not stenciled or painted.  Any ideas as to the era?  I'm fairly certain later than Civil War as any Civil war biscuits I've ever seen are square not round as pictured here.  Could this be of the Indian Wars, Span-Am War or WWI periods?  Any thoughts or knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks QED4.  Just sometimes us "oldsters" forget that the world of knowledge is at our internet fingertips.  From the information and photos it appears to be 19th century.  Thanks again!
