Annual Sergeant Floyd Memorial Is This Weekend In Sioux City

Sioux City, Iowa — The annual Sergeant Floyd Memorial encampment is this weekend along the banks of the Missouri River in Sioux City. Sergeant Charles Floyd was the only member of the 1804 Lewis and Clark Expedition to die. Sioux City Public Museum director Steve Hansen says re-enactors will show the public what expedition members did on their way to the Pacific Ocean.

Those presentations are happening Saturday and Sunday. There will be a re-enactment of the burial of Sergeant Floyd Saturday at the monument that bears his name.

The encampments on the river take place from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday, and from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday.
