In late June, Jubal E. Early had military objectives to cross the Susquehanna at Wrightsville, capture Lancaster, cut the railroad line into Philadelphia, and then attack Harrisburg from the east. Major General Robert E. Rodes’s division would attack the city’s front simultaneously. However three fateful days in Gettysburg changed forever those objectives. I have never heard of any Confederate military objective to capture James Buchanan's Lancaster home during Lee's invasion. While capturing Harrishurg, burning bridges and cutting railroad lines would offer a significant military win, I would think that capturing a prior US President's home would be an easy and significant "political" win for Lee. Is there any documentation where Lee or his Generals ever discussed Wheatland as a military objective? FYI- Tours are offered at Wheatland. It takes just over an hour for the tour and is an excellent stop for those heading east to see Lancaster and Amish country.
