American History TV interviewed landscape historian Jonathan Pliska about his book, The White House Easter Egg Roll: A History for All Ages. He described how presidents and first families have hosted the annual White House tradition which began in 1878, and what changes have been made along the way, including the addition of bands, costumed characters and keepsake wooden eggs. The interview was recorded a block from the White House at the Decatur House, the home of the White House Historical Association, which published the book. close
