Is the "Emancipation" Movie A True Story?

According to an Apple TV+ press release, "The film is inspired by the 1863 photos of 'Whipped Peter,' taken during a Union Army medical examination, that first appeared in Harper’s Weekly. One image, known as 'The Scourged Back,' which shows Peter’s bare back mutilated by a whipping delivered by his enslavers, ultimately contributed to growing public opposition to slavery."

You can read History Channel's backstory about the photo on their website, HERE.

Also, Wikipedia has a fantastic article about "Peter," whose actual slave name was "Gordon." Read more HERE.
