So, if the Confederates have 2 units stacked, and are in an adjacent hex to a Union unit, and the phasing Confederate player pays command points for both to melee, but then during defensive fire the top unit is Disorganized, will the bottom unit be permitted to move into the Union hex during melee?

11.26 states:

When two units stacked together both initiate melee, the bottom unit in the hex may only deliver the melee attack if the top unit is able to also.

12.1 "Effects of Disorganization" says:

(3) [Disorganized units] may not initiate melee attacks, and if involved in continuous melee or defending against a melee attack, their Melee Strength is reduced by one strength point.

There seems to be some murkiness in the rules as to what exactly "initating melee" means, so I'm unlcear as to whether or not the bottom unit can move in to the hex after the unit above it becomes disoragnized.

Thanks in advance!
