Biography: 

Ringo, the same age as Bayard Sartoris, stands as Bayard's constant childhood companion. Ringo holds a special place in the Sartoris household, treated by the whites in some respects as one of the white children. Ringo plays in the “Civil War” childhood battles with Bayard. He takes an active part in the spotting of and the shooting at the Yankee soldier. He encourages Bayard with chants of "Shoot the bastud! Shoot him!" as Bayard aims and fires the musket. While virtually all the characters in the story refer to him as Ringo, Granny (Rosa Millard) will only address him as Marengo.
