Hellcat,,I don't know where the idea of northern occupation came from either?

To comment on what you said, what army beside the ANV  had the resources to go on the offensive anytime after 1862?

Agreeing with you, the ANV's 'invasion' of Pennsylvania was to bring a bit of the war to the north, forage, grab some free blacks and possibly threaten Baltimore and DC for a short time.

We will never know for certain but looking how the 'invasion' played out, my thought is Lee probably wished he had stayed in Virginia.
