|Title||Anchor And Star March|
|Composer||Sousa, John Philip||
|Style||March||Location||Marshall's Band Library|
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." The Works of John Philip Sousa pg. 40 Paul E. Bierley Integrity Press 1984
