I believe the photo is misidentified, which is common when written up by civilians. I assume this is a group shot of the junior officers. I have to hunt down the Navy Register to get some names to go with the photo. If the Lieutenant is in command I am guessing it was taken close to the time she was being decommissioned.

|NR||OLD TIME MONITORS TO BE SOLD AS JUNK.|
THE MONITOR MONTAUK
The last of the old time war monitors, five in number, have been condemned by a naval board of survey and the Navy Department will shortly sell them to the highest bidders. The vessels are the Canonicus, Jason [ex-Sangamon], Lehigh, Montauk and Nahant. They are at the League Island Navy Yard. They will probably be bought by junk dealers and broken up for the iron contained in them.
