•  He was a member of Huntsville Rifles, "an organization of young men who drilled regularly once a week and acted as a civic body on occasion." In 1898 they turned to more serious business. He was as a Lieutenant to fight in the war against Spain. They were Company "F" of the Third Alabama Regiment of National Guards. - Chapman

•  This is the account of the Huntsville Rifles Group joining the Spanish-American War. It differs from Chapman's account in some respects (Chapman lists S. Floyd as a Lieutenant and Record lists him as a Private). Because it is difficult to sort the details, we will include both accounts: "The local Alabama State Troop group at Huntsville also went into service. The company had formerly been known as the Huntsville Rifles, Company K, until it disbanded in 1897 to re-form as the Monte Sano Light Guards, Company K. Second Regiment, with R. M. Fletcher, Jr. as Captain and Tom Hooper as First Sergeant. In 1898 the company became Company F and was transferred to the Third Regiment. Fletcher later resigned and Robert L. Hay was elected Captain. The group went to Camp Clark near Mobile where Hay resigned and Humes C. Laughlin assumed command. The command died not see battle action, however, but Private Schuyler H. Floyd died from fever. - Combined Record and Chapman
