How to Assign Commanders in Grand Tactician: The Civil War (1861-1865)
The commanding officer will be appointed by the state or the high command when recruiting and establishing a new headquarters. The assigned officer’s rank is displayed (in brackets). This indicates that he has not yet been promoted to this position. By clicking the replace button next to the commander’s portrait, you can change the commander of a unit at any time. Following your click, a list of all available commanders appears, from which you can select a new commander. To change the commander, click assign at the bottom of the panel.
When commanders’ appointments are confirmed by closing the management panel, they will automatically be promoted to the appropriate rank.
The commanders’ experience is limited to their current position and rank. When promoted and assigned to higher command, some of the experience is lost: a captain who has command experience in a battery will not automatically command experience in a division or corps when promoted to major general.
