If one uses history as a barometer, when the British captured/destroyed DC during the War of 1812, it did not cause an end to the hostilities. The leaders simply moved to another city.
Even if the rebs captured DC (which I doubt they could've), I don't see the war ending.
Conversely, even if Little Mac had taken Richmond after the Peninsula, the war would've still gone on. The same could be said for the taking of Washington, DC. As the war showed, destroying the opposing army ws much easier said than done. Sorry for stating the overbearingly obvious, my friends.
