i was actually thinking on this subject not too long ago, and what i think is that if Lee had been defeated in 62 at antietam then the war may have lasted even longer. During the time of antietam Lee wasnt as beloved as he was after chancellorsville and even gettysburg, also the ANV in 1865 was on the verge of starvation and only comprised of about 23,000 men but not so during antietam the troops were for the most part healthy and strong. I think the confederates would have began a guerilla war in the east no matter how much Lee would have tried to persuade them to do otherwise. Can you imagine how much the war would have changed? Hell if lee had been destroyed at antietam then we may still have been fighting the war today
