The first two Senators from Wyoming were Francis E. Warren and Joseph M. Carey. Both were first elected in 1890 four months after Wyoming entered the Union. Warren stepped down from office in 1893. Warren had been the first Governor of Wyoming until becoming a Senator (he was the territorial Governor prior to statehood). He was the last Civil War veteran to serve in the US Senate, and a medal of honor recipient from his actions during the war. He returned to the Senate in 1895 by beating Carey for his seat. Warren served in the Senate until his death at age 85 in 1929. Carey only served one term, but became the 8th Governor of Wyoming in 1911 where he again served one term. See more
