This chapter examines the image and perception of Abraham Lincoln in Wales. It explains that Wales celebrated the anniversary of Lincoln in 2009 and that Lincoln was considered the embodiment of their libertarian and other values such as social mobility and the free ethic of the democratic-republican ideal. It also suggests that the Emancipation Proclamation assured Lincoln's status in Wales and mentions that most of the Welsh-language newspapers formed at this time gave him full and favorable coverage.

Keywords:   Abraham Lincoln, Wales, social mobility, democratic-republican ideal, libertarian values, Emancipation Proclamation
