The USS Monitor was an iron-hulled steamship. Built during the American Civil War, it was the first ironclad warship commissioned by the United States Navy. Monitor is most famous for her central role in the Battle of Hampton Roads on 9 March 1862, where, under the command of John Worden, she fought the casemate ironclad CSS Virginia (the former steam frigate USS Merrimack) to a standoff. The unique design of the ship, distinguished by its revolving turret, was quickly duplicated and established the Monitor type of warship.
