Not much, the brief forays into Northern Territory may have not happened with the Army of Virgina. But the Northern states would still have industry and a naval choke hold on their side. So the long term result would ultimately most likely turned out the same. This is like saying what would happen if all Confederate field officers wore sandals the entire war what impact that would make.
