In researching my family I came across an obituary of the wife of my Great Great Uncle, Graves Peter Norgard. (I have yet to find his obituary.) It states in her obituary that Graves "was in the navy during the Civil War and took part in the naval battle between the Monitor and the Merrimac". His birth date, as I have it, was 18 March 1845. Do you find any record of such a person serving on either ship? He died in 1902. Thanks for any help you can give.
