On February 25, 1870, Hiram Rhodes Revels, a former captain in the Union Army during the Civil War, became the first African-American elected to the U.S. Senate. The vote, taken by the Mississippi State Senate (U.S. Senators were not elected by popular vote at that time), fell along strict party lines with 48 Republicans voting in favor of Revels, and 8 Democrats voting against him. Prior to his election, Revels taught Theology at Shaw College, a historically black college in Holly Spring, MS. After his term expired, he became the first president of the newly-founded Alcomb Agricultural and Mechanical College, a historically black college in Claiborne County, MS. Revels died on January 16, 1901.
