The USS Mohican was a steam sloop-of-war in the United States Navy during the Civil War. She was named for the Mohican tribe and was the first ship of her class.

Mohican was laid down by Portsmouth Navy Yard, Kittery, Maine, in August 1858; launched on 15 February 1859; and commissioned on 29 November 1859, Commander Sylvanus William Godon in command. During the Civil War the ship saw action at Port Royal, blockade duty off the Carolinas where she chased the CSS Florida and Alabama but never caught up with them and took part in the several attacks on Fort Fisher, North Carolina.

After the war, the Mohican sailed in the Pacific mostly around South America and Panama.

Mohican was decommissioned at Mare Island, California on 25 June 1872 and by the end of the year had sunk at her moorings. She was subsequently towed onto the Mare Island mud flats and broken up.  [ad] [ph:L]
