The three newest members of Boy Scout Troop 412 - Sean Maguire, Brendan Heisler and Joshua Macias - recently participated in the Easter egg roll at the White House in Washington, D.C., on April 1.

They represented their troop and the Mason-Dixon Council at the traditional event that dates to 1861.
On that date, President Abraham Lincoln’s son, Tad, hosted the first documented informal egg-rolling party.

The tradition today, known as the Easter egg roll, was established by President Rutherford B. Hayes and his wife, Lucy.
