Jimmy Carter's FFA jacket is among the highlights of the American Enterprise exhibition

A Future Farmers of America (FFA) jacket owned by former US president Jimmy Carter has been accepted into the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

Carter said in a speech in 1979: "The first organisation I belonged to was a Baptist church; the second organisation was the FFA."
