AUGUSTA, Maine — A Democratic legislator wants to declare a song about Maine's most renowned Civil War soldiers as the official state ballad.
Maine doesn't have a state ballad. It does have a little known, official song dating back to the early 1930s: "The State of Maine Song" by Roger Vinton Snow of Portland.
The state's official march is "The Dirigo March," which lawmakers approved in 2012.
Republican Rep. Will Tuell said it's possible the public is tired of proposals to create new state symbols.
