Sergeant Charles Floyd was one of the first men to sign on to the Corps of Discovery. 35 men under the command of Lewis & Clark were sent by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the new land purchased from France. The Louisiana Purchase doubled the size of the newly formed United States of America.
The Corps of Discovery was a specially-established unit of the United States Army which formed the nucleus of the Lewis and Clark Expedition that took place between May 1804 and September 1806. The Corps, which was a select group of volunteers, were led jointly by Captain Meriwether Lewis and Second Lieutenant William Clark. Commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson, the Corps' objectives were both scientific and commercial – to study the area's plants, animal life, and geography, and to learn how the Louisiana Purchase could be exploited economically.

He died just south of Sioux City by a tributary of the Missouri. Lewis & Clark named it the Floyd River. The expedition buried him on a bluff overlooking the Floyd River, now named Floyd Bluff.
