  2. 2. One serious conflict involved both commissioned and noncommissioned officers. In June 1864 (Lt. Col.) Chamberlain chided Capt. George A. Bailey, who commanded Co. H, for his inability to handle one of his sergeants, Andrew Marshall. The evidence suggests that the problem had less to do with racial tension and more to do with Bailey’s incompetence. The Capt. wanted to exchange Sgt. Marshall for another Sgt., but Chamberlain told him either to manage Marshall or to jail him. The episode was resolved only when Bailey resigned his commission on 14 August 1864. Andrew Marshall would then rise to the rank of Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant. Richard M. Reid, Freedom for Themselves: North Carolina’s Black Soldiers in the Civil War Era (UNC: 2008), 165.
