This chapter examines the global popularity of Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth U.S. president. It analyzes the routes that Lincoln's name and reputation traveled and what Lincoln's celebrity can tell us about transnational political, economic, and cultural networks. It highlights the importance of Lincoln's reputation as a self-made man, his humanitarianism, humility, moral code, and religion revealed by the reputation as the emancipator and the lack of sustained and bare-knuckled foreign critiques of Lincoln.

Keywords:   Abraham Lincoln, U.S. president, self-made man, humanitarianism, humility, moral code, religion, emancipator
