The rules make a point of distinguishing between towns (circles) and cities (squares), and yet only towns are referenced when specific rules are spelled out (eg, "Defenders located on a friendly town have their SP doubled during battle"). Can we assume that all mentions of towns also apply equally to cities?

By the way, what defines "friendly? Naturally, towns/cities belonging to each side at the start of the game are friendly for that side. Are occupied towns/cities friendly? Captured towns/cities?

Agreed, defended doubles his SP if on a friendly town OR city, that could be made more clear in the rules. The assumptions one makes!

"Friendly" town means one owned by your side thus for the Confed side all towns with a grey circle plus any Union town captured which will then also have a gray counter on it. Occupied towns (i.e. with the half grey/white counter) are not "friendly" and hence defenders would not get the x2 strength point bonus. Captured cities is largely irrelevant as if you capture an opponents city you've won the game. The only exception is the status of fortress Monroe which has a square on the map, I'm thinking that a blue circle would have been simpler.
