The Senator was a popular play that premiered in 1890 and ran for 119 performances on Broadway before touring the country. Written by David D. Lloyd and Sydney Rosenfeld, the plot centers on charismatic Senator Hannibal Rivers as he tries to push a bill through the Senate for War of 1812 reparations for destitute family. Filled with political suspense, humor, and romance, the play was a runaway hit. The character of Senator Hannibal Rivers was originally played by renowned actor William H. Crane who based his performance on Kansas Senator Preston B. Plumb who served as Lt. Colonel of the 11th Kansas Volunteer Cavalry stationed at Fort Caspar in 1865. Crane copied Plumb's appearance and mannerisms, and the writers modeled the personality of Senator Rivers on Plumb.
