The Ring family of Williamson County provided three of their four sons to the American Army. Maj. Joseph Ring served in the engineers and he discusses the building projects they are working on in the immediate post-war era. He complains about preparing for a visit from Pershing which required a lot of cleaning up. Pershing arrived in the night so no one ever saw him, "so all of our shining and slicking up was done for nothing." Pershing did inspect them them a few days later.
