I'm not even sure that Lee himself knew what his next step would be. I feel that even if Lee had somehow won at Gettysburg he would have been like Hannibal wandering around the countryside. He had neither the logistics system nor the siege equipment necessary to sustain a long term campaign in northern territory.
