Abram Duryée (April 29, 1815 – September 27, 1890) was a Union Army general during the American Civil War, the commander of one of the most famous Zouave regiments, the 5th New York Volunteer Infantry. After the war he was New York City Police Commissioner.

Duryée was born in New York City. In 1833, he joined the New York State Militia, serving in the 142nd New York Regiment. He moved on to the 27th Regiment (the 7th today) five years later. Starting as a private, he eventually rose to Colonel of the regiment in 1859.

During the Civil War, Duryée raised a new regiment, the 5th New York Volunteers and became its colonel on May 14, 1861. "Duryée's Zouaves" fought at Big Bethel. Duryée was appointed brigadier general, on August 31, 1861. He was wounded at Second Bull Run, South Mountain, and Antietam.

In 1873, Duryée was appointed New York City Police Commissioner. Abram Duryée died in New York and is buried in Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn.
