Use solve command to determine a shift value for graph?

I have created a code for my graph: Manipulate[Plot[E^-2 x Cos[Pi x] + c, {x, -3, 4}], {c, 0, 3}] Using the sliders, it appears that F[x] must be shifted up approximately 2.12341 units up in order to pass through the point (1,2). However, I would like to know how to use the solve command to determine what the exact shift value is for the graph to pass through (1,2). I have already tried looking up the Mathematica solve command, but I could only find articles for other equations and none that could help me in this case.

Thank you.

for $x=1$ function should be equal to $2$.

   eq = E^-2 x Cos[Pi x] + c == 2;
   sol = Solve[eq /. x -> 1, c]
   (* {{c -> (1 + 2 E^2)/E^2}} *)
   (* {{c -> 2.13534}} *)

   (eq /. x -> 1) /. sol
   (* {True} *)
