    Infantry can fire through your own units without causing any friendly damage, though it does seem to reduce the effectiveness of the fire from the unit behind (you get the red or yellow musket icon indicating that they have a shooting penalty).

    What I still haven't figured out is whether you hit some of your own men when you fire into a melee.

    As to artillery hitting your own units, putting your guns on a hill can allow you to shoot over the heads of your men (though if the hill isn't steep enough, or you men are too close to the guns, then it can be a costly and embarassing mistake).

    I may be imagining it but after (maybe before?) changing some settings with the various mods I saw one of my Cavalry being shot when he "got in the way" of a volley.....I was surprised because never saw that before and nothing was near him.
