Code Sample, a copy-pastable example if possible

xref #20846

In [2]: dti = pd.date_range('20180101', '20180103', periods=3, tz='US/Eastern')

In [3]: dti
Out[3]: DatetimeIndex(['2017-12-31', '2018-01-01', '2018-01-02'], dtype='datetime64[ns, US/Eastern]', freq=None)

In [4]: dti[0]
Out[4]: Timestamp('2017-12-31 19:00:00-0500', tz='US/Eastern')

Problem description

The dates in the date_range are not being localized correctly; the dates are being shifted back by the UTC offset, then having the timezone appended to the shifted back date.

Expected Output

I'd expect this to be identical to the equivalent non-linspace behavior call:

In [5]: dti2 = pd.date_range('20180101', periods=3, freq='D', tz='US/Eastern')

In [6]: dti2
DatetimeIndex(['2018-01-01 00:00:00-05:00', '2018-01-02 00:00:00-05:00',
               '2018-01-03 00:00:00-05:00'],
              dtype='datetime64[ns, US/Eastern]', freq='D')

In [7]: dti2[0]
Out[7]: Timestamp('2018-01-01 00:00:00-0500', tz='US/Eastern', freq='D')

Output of pd.show_versions()
