The Naval Academy, Annapolis

Daily assembly, formation for lunch of midshipmen at Bancroft Hall.

Classic Navy

Formal parade of midshipmen.

Academy sailboats parade on the water in the background behind the brigade:  two regiments, 30 companies.

There are about 4000 midshipmen.  Gabe says, "That's a lot of guns."  There were 16 rounds of cannon fire too.
