If you do not disengage, the other side decides when the battle is over.

Make the other side retreat?

Just stop attacking, hunker down and see if the other side is inclined to force the issue. As like the 2d day at Antietam or the 4th day at Gettysburg and during the entire face off at Hagerstown.

Don't show up

Throw pila, draw gladius, advance behind the eagle!

Display the Empoerer's Chrysanthemum banner. It worked in the Boshin War.

Declare a challenge & send out your champion to fight theirs…

Martin Rapier19 Nov 2020 11:32 p.m. PST

As noted above, stop attacking and see what the other side does. In the nineteenth century before railways, one or both sides will have to withdraw fairly soon before they all die of disease or starve to death anyway.

Do a Trump and say we may as well stop the battle now because I've clearly won?

Kill a snake. No wait, that's how to start one.
