Ambrose Everett Burnside (Liberty (Indiana), 23 mei 1824 - Bristol (Rhode Island) , 13 september 1881) was een Amerikaans spoorwegmagnaat, industrieel, gouverneur van Rhode Island en senator. Als Noordelijk generaal in de Amerikaanse Burgeroorlog werd hij vernietigend verslagen in de Slag bij Fredericksburg. Desondanks bleef hij de hele oorlog actief als generaal én zeer populair.

De Engelse term sideburns voor extreem-gegroeide bakkebaarden is afgeleid van zijn naam.
