WASHINGTON (CIRCA) - When you think about the sport of cheerleading, the Dallas Cowboys probably always come to mind. They've been considered the standard of excellence since at least since the 1980s. Now, their legacy will forever be a part of American history.
The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are donating a few items to the National Museum of American History. They include an original uniform designed by Paula Van Wagoner from the '80s, a 2011 uniform, sets of poms, and Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders Barbie dolls.
The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders haven't just rooted for their football team from the sidelines. The squad has also traveled around the world on more than 80 USO tours and made numerous television appearances.
They're not the first cheerleaders to dance their way into history. Texas' Greenville High School Flaming Flashes and the Kilgore College Rangerettes have already donated items to the museum.
