My point was that Rebs would take potshots at the Union  garrison at Ft

Don't think anyone took potshots at Ft Jeff.

You know, since Southmost, the sourthern most town  in the contiguous 48,

just by brownsville, you have to be  correct.

I defense od Florida, the southern most fort was Dry  Tortugas.
