Shawnee, a single turret, light-draft monitor was built by Curtis & Tilden, Boston, Mass., and delivered to the government at the Boston Navy Yard on 22 July 1865. She was pronounced unseaworthy before completion, due to faulty design; and, on 10 November 1865, she was ordered to be laid up in ordinary at the Boston Navy Yard. Shawnee had no service in the Navy and she was scrapped on 9 September 1875.
