Delve into the rich history of the Egg Roll, dating back to the 1870s when Capitol Hill was a popular spot for children to roll eggs on Easter Monday. Over time, the tradition evolved, leading to a law forbidding the Capitol grounds for this purpose. In 1878, President Rutherford B. Hayes welcomed children to roll their Easter eggs on the White House grounds, initiating a tradition that continues to thrive today.
