  Comparing the 1863 photograph (left) to the 2002 photograph (right); In the 2002 photograph, Grant stood near the location marked with an "A", his officers were near "B" and the white dotted line marks the approximate location of the edge of the cliff, which is visible in the 1863 photograph, but hidden by foliage in the 2002 photograph.

** I have been unable to determine if the rock at the Summit of Lookout mountain has a name (ie Pulpit Rock) and until I determine otherwise, I will use "Summit rock" to identify it.
