I will quote the PDF:

Square Formation: Charges against unprepared infantry can be
devastating. To defend your men against such attacks, you may order
them to form a defensive square. This will greatly increase their chances
of repelling enemy charges.


It doesn't specifically say Calvary charges, just charges. Does square have any impact vs Infantry charge?

yes it does, in the demo it repels Infantry hand-to-hand charges. It's not realistic, but it's the way it is, I don't like it that much.

In terms of realism the game is a crock of sh1t, Live with it.

and also your men will ahve less chance to launch a decent volley of fire into the enemy while charging.
