History: The area of Ringgold county is a little more than 540 square miles, divided at present into seventeen townships. The territory in Ringgold county was technically a part of Des Moines county from 1834 to 1836 under the territorial Goveor of Wisconsin. Then the territory of Iowa was organized and for some years, this region remained undesignated, unsurveyed, and unsettled. In 1847 the boundaries of the county were established and the name of Ringgold given in honor of Major Samuel Ringgold, who was mortally wounded in the battle of Palo Alto, fought a little more than a year before in the Mexican War. For the next four years Ringgold was included in the temporary county of Taylor. Then it was attached to the newly organized county of Decatur. On April 18, 1855 the town of Mount Ayr was awarded the county seat.
