    Ozark was a single-turreted river monitor built for the U.S. Navy during the American Civil War. The ship served in the Mississippi River Squadron during the war and participated in the Red River Campaign shortly after she was commissioned in early 1864. Ozark patrolled the Mississippi River and its tributaries after the end of the campaign for the rest of the war. She was decommissioned after the war and sold in late 1865.
