To prove a point that the the City of Washington was "eternal Confederate" teritorry, then yes Wilson would have risked it. Of course there would have been a huge Confederate security presense in the city, in addition to the occupation troops.

A squad of paratroopers with the U.S. 17th Airborne Division pose for a photo near the top of Lookout Mountain two days after seizing the position. The capture of Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge (by the U.S. 51st Airborne Division) forced Confedederate General George Patton to withdraw from Chatanooga, and ensured that U.S. General Irving Morrell had a clear path to advancing on Atlanta.

Soldiers of the U.S. 15th Mountain Regiment advance towards Banff, Alberta; circa March, 1916. Although the Pacific coastline of Canada had been considered a backwater for priority, the continued victories of Major Morrell shifted the opinion of the U.S. General Staff. By the Spring of 1916, increased resources towards the theater allowed the U.S. to cut off the Canadian Pacific coast and further increase the Allies' precarious postion in Canada.
