Captain Von Bachelle is the subject of a folk story which took place during the Battle of Antietam. In the days prior to the Battle Capt. Von Bachelle befriended a dog, which quickly became Captain Von Bachelle's pet and the mascot of the 6th Wisconsin. During the battle Captain Werner Von Bachelle, fell mortally wounded and as the story went, the pet stayed at Von Bachelle's side and the next morning was found atop the corpse, shot dead while defending his master. Captain Von Bachelle is buried in the Antietam National Cemetery and as local legend has it his loyal pet rest with him.
