North American Eastern War Time Zone

The North American Eastern War Time Zone (abbreviated EWT) was a geographic region that kept time by subtracting four hours from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) resulting in GMT-4. It was used in place of Eastern Standard Time during World War II from February 9, 1942 until September 30, 1945. It was equivalent to year round Eastern Daylight Time.
