The freedom fighters bravely took to the Hill to show the world what good, old-fashioned patrotism looks like.
Just look at these rabble-rousers.
He's so brave.
Reporters raced to the scene to get the inside scoop on the civil disobedience.
The sledding ban has been a hot topic of debate in D.C. this winter, the Washington Post reported.
Sledding was banned on the Hill after 9/11, but the rule was rarely enforced. However, last month capitol police began to enforce the ban after complaints, the Washington Post reported.
But lawmakers, such as D.C.'s at-large congressional representative Eleanor Holmes Norton, spoke out to fight for the children's right to sled.
Holmes Norton requested that officials lift the ban temporarily during Thursday's snow storm, and reconsider the ban in the future.
"Children and their parents should able to enjoy sledding on one of the best hills in the city," she said.
