Patriotic Theme for Community Choir

Would anyone be willing to send me a list of your concert pieces for a patriotic theme?  This is for a community choir who can sing moderately difficult pieces, not advanced, some a cappella, but mostly piano accompaniment.

Here's my arrangement of America, the Beautiful: http://choirworks.com/index.php/satb/patriotic-1/america-the-beautiful-satb and a performance of the arrangement: http://youtu.be/V7Ji9Zc_NiI?t=19m26s
 
I've also compiled a patiotic program for solo voice and minus tracks that I'd love the chance to arrange for SATB in whole or part: http://choirworks.com/index.php/unison-solo-rounds/american-revolutions-a-patriotic-program
 
Good luck!

I recommend to you a beautiful setting of "We the People" by Ann Diers. Shawnee Press 
35027543. SATB. Hal Leonard. I have used it with a church choir and will use it again this year for an 80 voice choir on Cape Cod.

Thank you all for your suggestions.  What I am really asking is for someone to share your program list for a patriotic concert.  I have had numerous patriotic concerts but I'd like to see someone else's ideas for a full program.  Your input is greatly appreciated.

Randall Thompson's Testament of Freedom
Howard Hanson's Song of Democracy
 
Good Luck,
