Williamsport where?
 
"Southern most battle in the east".
 
Now I've decided on Tampa as the Yanks raided there, I think,  twice.
 
It has to be Fla.
 
Nothing in Key West....   Ft Lauderdale- think they  raided there too.
 
That darn George.   He is far too clever for the  rest of us.
 
Your  Most Obedient Servant,
Peter

estate and find myself not paying  attention to other details. Now where is are 
my ADD  meds....?

southern-most Civil War battle in the  East.
