Anchors Aweigh

Anchors Aweigh - Music written by Bandmaster LT. Zimmerman in 1906, he was approached by Midshipman First Class Alfred Hart Miles with a request for a new march. As a member of the Class of 1907, Miles and his classmates "were eager to have a piece of music that would be inspiring, one with a swing to it so it could be used as a football marching song, and one that would live forever."
