Biography: 

Ringo is of the same age as his companion, Bayard Sartoris. He was born a slave. Since the Emancipation Proclamation was proclaimed in January 1863, technically he is not a slave anymore; however, he continues his role as a servant. His demeanor is not submissive as demonstrated by how crucially he functions in negotiations with Union soldiers. Ringo uses the opportunity that presents itself, which is based on misunderstanding and a clerical error - as well as on his ability to out-think the Union soldiers - to secure 122 mules from the Union army for Rosa Millard.
