The following appears courtesy of B.W. Smith:

In 1926, Charles J. Sullivan, Capt., 26th Infantry, compiled a guide book to US Army posts for the benefit of officers who were being stationed at new locations. This guide book was updated in 1935 and again in 1936. These books offer a brief description of army posts from the point of view of the officers stationed there. BW Smith has scanned the coast artillery forts in the 1926 edition, as arranged by Sullivan, in Departments (Panama, Hawaii, Philippines) and then by 1st-9th Corps Areas. They are presented here as separate files, since many people are primarily interested in one fort or one harbor defense. For those unsure of which Corps Area their favorite fort lay in, the 1st Corps Area was New England, the 2nd was New York, New Jersey, and Delaware. The 3rd was the Maryland and Virginia defenses, and the 4th was the Southeast, except for Galveston, TX, which was in the 8th Corps Area. Lastly, the 9th Corps Area covered the Pacific Coast. The Departmental defenses are obvious.

Army Posts & Towns - 1st Corps Area 1100 kb (New England)
Army Posts & Towns - 2nd Corps Area 1566 kb (New York, New Jersey, Delaware)
Army Posts & Towns - 3rd Corps Area 586 kb (Maryland and Virginia)
Army Posts & Towns - 4th Corps Area 588 kb (Southeast -Galveston,TX)
Army Posts & Towns - 8th Corps Area 347 kb (Galveston, TX)
Army Posts & Towns - 9th Corps Area 1424 kb (Pacific Coast)
Army Posts & Towns - Hawaii 574 kb
Army Posts & Towns - Philippines 771 kb
Army Posts & Towns - Panama 478 kb
