The 189th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment was an infantry regiment of the Union Army during the American Civil War.


In September 1864, the regiment's first two commanders received authority to recruit, and organized at Elmira, including four companies originally recruited for the 175th New York. It was mustered in the service of the United States for one year in August and September, 1864. One company was transferred to the 15th Engineers, but was replaced by a new company.
