The rules state:
In battles started where less than three units are in a location by
BOTH sides, the left and right battlefi eld positions are ignored.
The battle is fought as a skirmish which is fought with ALL
units of each side placed in the center battlefield position. The
battle is fought as normal without a reserve. However, in nonfortified
locations, if American militia flee they do move to their
reserve as normal and can not return to the center battlefield
if the battle continues. No other units can move to reserve.
So what happens to militia when they are forced to flee in a fortified position?
(Do flee results even apply to milita in a fort?)
(If the fort had only 1 or 2 milita, the result can never be a Battle Forced Retreat because all combat occurs in the center.)
