How to wire a light switch in the USA

2 way light switch with power feed via switch (two lights)

The power source enters the switch box (SB1) where the neutral is spliced through to the light fixture (F1) where it is spliced to the light (LT1) and, via cable C3, to the second light LT2. The hot from the power source connects to the 2-way switch (SW1) where it can be switched to the hot terminal of the light LT1 and spliced through to LT2 via the cable C3.
