List of United States Senators in the 15th Congress by seniority

 

List of United States Senators in the 15th Congress by seniority

This is a classification of United States Senators by seniority from March 4, 1817 to March 3, 1819.

Order of service is based on the commencement of the senator's first term. Behind this is former service as a senator (only giving the Senator seniority within his or her new incoming class), service as Vice President, a House member, a Cabinet secretary, or a governor of a state. The final factor is the population of the senator's state.[1]

The two main parties at this point were the Federalists (F), and Democratic Republicans (DR). At the end of this congress, there was one person elected who was an Anti-Democrat (AD).
