Lewisburg Pike does follow the same path as it did in 1864.  The railroad cut is actually just slightly north of the pike and railroad intersection.  The cut was actually created when the engineers had to carve into edge of the small hill just to get level ground on which to lay the tracks.  If you have access to Levi Scofield's book look at page 36.  That view is looking south toward the intersection of the pike and railroad and the north embankment of the cut is visible on the right side of the tracks.  Hope that wasn't too confusing.  The best thing to do is walk the ground and when you're down here next time we'll do it.  It will make much more sense then.
