Following his military service, he was a member of the Danville Conventions in 1787 and 1788 which adopted a petition "demanding admission to the Union." Caldwell was one of the state's first senators serving 1792-1796. He was later elected Lieutenant Governor, serving with Governor Greenup, September 4, 1804 until his death on November 19, 1804.
