I think they could get a little nervous  sometimes.

I  think he had to go anywhere that would scare the bejeezus  out of  
Lincoln, Halleck and Stanton

It seems that  everyone agrees that if Lee had gone  to Harrisburg, he 
would 
not  have tried to stay there any longer than  necessary. So then, the  
contentious issue is wether he really planned on going  there at all?  

(This is a "Just Occurred to Me"  question): If his goal was to  draw the 
AoP north, how far north was far  enough?

damage 
manufacturing  operations, capture supplies, and   generally create further 
panic in the  north, but holding the city  was  never an option. I believe 
there 
was a  relatively small  window of  opportunity for the ANV to operate in   
Pennsylvania.
