War-date carte de visite of General Abram Duryea, in uniform, no backmark. Fine condition. Abram Duryea (1815-1890) He commanded his regiment in five desperate riots in New York city, was wounded in the Astor place riot, and his prompt action on that occasion suppressed a serious outbreak, though not without the loss of several lives. He was among the first to recruit volunteers for the Civil war, raising in less than a week, in April, 1861, the 5th N. Y. regiment, known as "Duryee's Zouaves," leading it to the front and participating in the first important battle of the war, the disastrous engagement at Big Bethel, June 10, 1861.
