Notes
Composed in 1918. "While leading the U.S. Navy Battalion Band at the Great Lakes 
Naval Training Center during World War I, Sousa composed this march and 
dedicated it 'To the U.S. Navy.' It is often compared with 'Semper Fidelis' 
because it bears a resemblance in construction, rhythm, key and contrapuntal 
devices. Just as 'Globe and Eagle' was named after the U.S. Marine Corps emblem, 
this march was named after the U.S. Navy emblem."
