While playing the Union vs. AI I have noticed on several occasions noticed the following:
The battle concludes and the screen indicates that the CSA forces were withdrawing (which to me would indicate a Union Victory). However, when the battle results screen comes up it indicates that the CSA forces won a victory (minor, major or strategic). This leaves me confused.

Has anyone else encountered this? Am I missing something?

That's very odd - which version did you see this with? Do you perchance have a save file that duplicates it?

I have encountered this before as well. On the "tug of war" blue-grey battle screen where the action unfolds step by step,  the bar will slowly fill up one way or the other - indicating, I assumed, that the side who lost his little half of the bar is withdrawing. However, when I exited and the battle resolution screen came up, the side who seemed to have lost had instead won, though the casualties stayed the same - essentially one side retreated instead of the other. This happened a few times before, but as far as I could tell, only in near draws. Having 0 knowledge of programming, I am hesitant to offer a hypothesis as to what that might mean.

Question ... Did either of you who encountered this happen to "X" or close the combat box before the program does? I have gotten goofy results if I close the combat box and force the battle to conclusion. Goofy meaning about what these guy's are saying.

Version 1.030 (have not downloaded the most recent [April 2009]release yet).

Unfortunately, did not save a version (or at least do not remember which save file might contain that).
I will save a version if I should see that again.

Yes, I normally"X"/ close the combat box just before the program does. If this causes a problem, I will refrain from doing so in the future.
