Eli Sellers was absent at a court martial. While he was absent, the regiment was paraded for review, in front of the division hospital, under Theodore Hope's command. Joseph Gilbert was then commanding the first division. When Sellers returned, Hope said something like "I suppose I'm relieved. I may get out of this", but Sellers ordered him to take command of the first division. Sellers then realized that Gilbert had had command of the first division, and sent the adjutant to take command of company F. Gilbert then came next to Sellers, on the way to company F, and asked whether he should take command of his own company. Sellers repeated that his orders were to take command of company F, and Gilbert replied that there was some "God damned funny things [or work] going on here". Sellers immediately placed him under arrest, and ordered him to go to his quarters.
