    I'm fighting as Teddy Roosevelt, and combined two Infantry units into a corps. Eventually the corps (or at least one of the units in the corps) became eligible for promotion. But, whenever I select that corps, there is no option for selecting a promotion. What gives?

    Generally that means that the unit has no movement remaining.

    In addition to Jaybe's point, sometimes the promotion icon is hidden until the unit is woken up or its orders cancelled, with the icon that looks like a sun or like the forbidden symbol (circle with a diagonal bar in it)

    I think narmox got it right. It looks like the problem was that the unit was healing in place (no movement) and the icon didn't appear until the unit was fully healed. So when I have another corps unit healing and is ready for promotion, I'll wake it up and see if that works. Either way, I'll come back to this thread and report. Thanks, everybody.

    I often have to hit the cancel button (cancel orders) in order to promote.

    I don't think corps (or armies for that matter) retain any of the individuality of their original single units. A corp or an army are essentially single units and act like one.
