Bottom of page 71:
• Broken units must attempt to rally during the PLAYER's nextfirst Recovery Phase after it becomes Broken. If the Broken unit either fails to rally or doesn’t attempt to rally then it is destroyed and removed from the table.

I have not found anything spot on saying so, but the implications of the mechanics indicates that Rally rolls are mandatory and occur before and independently of commander recoveries.
Cavalry can in theory break and rally multiple times since the single-rally rule only covers infantry.
Artillery can only recover abandoned guns once, but it can in theory break normally and rally multiple times.

This suggests that a rally attempt precludes the commander recovering anyone else, but is equally true if the broken only needs to be within 4 MU and the broken are too spread out to cover within the 4 MU zone.

Don't find anything re Cavarly suffering likewise.
terrys wrote:Rallying a broken unit is the same as recovering a broken unit. We only use the term 'rally' in order to signify that the unit is about to be permanently lost. Each Corps or Divisional Commander can only recover or rally one unit in his recovery phase.
Sacile OOB puts more than one artillery unit in a division. But rules specify max 1 artillery unit per division. Is this an exception because its a historical list
MikeK wrote:The existing 1813 Austrian list restriction already says all light infantry taken, both units and attachments, must be in one mixed division. It seems odd that when all lights are restricted to one division that they can't make detachments to screen the line infantry of the division. Since there is a cap of 4 infantry in a mixed division (probably 2 line units), this does not seem subject to much abuse.
