See?  I get confoozed too darn easily.  It's that  George.  Too clever for 
me.
 
In the Eastern theater where would the S boundary  be?
 
Time-Life put out a daily almanac and put the S Atlantic coast  in the 
western theater.
 
Your  Most Obedient Servant,
Peter

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

I'm sorry, I meant H. L.,  not  M. L. I'm in the middle of settling an 
estate and find myself  not paying  attention to other details. Now where 
is are 
my ADD   meds....?

26ª11'56"N   81ª48'19W" (Look it  up!),  Hint: not far from the 
southern-most Civil War battle in  the  East.
