Cypress Hill is a neglected  section of  The Cemetery  of the Evergreens  in New Lebanon, NY.
Dating back over 200 years, it is the final resting place of numerous Revolutionary War Veterans  
as well as veterans from more recent wars. A much needed  restoration  of  this portion of  the
cemetery is supported by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), the NL Town Historian, the
Floyd Carlton Post of the American Legion, The Cemetery  of  the Evergreens Board, as well as
numerous others from the  community. New Lebanon has the distinction of supporting  the Revolution
with 20 or more veterans lying  on this hill as well as another 30 or more buried in numerous
private cemeteries  throughout   the town.
Historical research of those interred here has been an exhaustive ongoing project by dedicated
history buffs.
The Hudson Chapter of the DAR is sponsoring an application for a ‘matching’ $10,000 grant to be
submitted by the end 2023. Local donations recently started with a letter from the Town Historian
distributed by the Town Clerk’s office to all residents. The short time frame to raise the
‘matching’ funds results in a direct appeal to benefactors to push the drive to or above the goal.
The DAR has established a working relationship with Christopher White of Albany to clean, repair,
and  reset stones as needed to make this a fitting tribute to our Veterans as well as possible
expansion of the project  to New Lebanon’s  founding  fathers  and ancestors.
A positive response would be a fitting tribute and a lasting acknowledgment with the 2501h  
anniversary of  the Revolution on the horizon.
