River of the Big Canoe


History puts us, very specifically, in this place, as the explorers are encamped beyond the bluffs of what is present day Sioux City, Iowa. From the Journal of William Clark: “We buried him on the top of the bluff a half mile below a small river to which we gave his name. He was buried with the honors of war, much lamented. A cedar post with the name: Sergeant C. Floyd died here 20th of August 1804 was fixed at the head of his grave. This man at all times gave us proof of his firmness, and determined resolution to do service to his country, and honor to himself. After paying all the honor to our deceased brother, we camped in the mouth of Floyd's River, about 30 yards wide. A beautiful evening.
