ANV could have crushed the AOTP, they nearly did it several times, 2nd Manassas for instance. Lee's plan wasnt only to crush the AOTP but to cut washington's lines of communication and supply. Also England could have very easily supported the CSA, brazil was a colony of England at the time and brazil had an active slave economy. With the morale of the north during the spring of 1863 the war could have and probably would have been in the south's favor if Lee could have achieved a victory of any kind especially a decisive victory
