John Lorimer Worden [1818 1897] was a U. S Navy officer in the American Civil War who took part in the Battle of Hampton Roads, the first ever engagement between ironclad steamships at Hampton Roads, Virginia, on March 9, 1862. Admiral Worden was the first to command the USS Monitor, the only Union warship of this class against the Confederate vessel CSS Virginia, a converted steam-frigate that had previously sunk a Union blockader and damaged two others.

The historic first battle of two American ironclad ships endured for four hours with both ships withdrawing after being unable to pierce the other ships armor.
