It will feature the voices of The Queen's Gambit actor Bill Camp as Abraham Lincoln and Hamilton alum Leslie Odom Jr. as Frederick Douglass.

"The series features insights from a diverse range of journalists, educators and Lincoln scholars, as well as rare archival materials, that offer a more nuanced look into the man dubbed the Great Emancipator," a press release said.

"Set against the background of the Civil War, Lincoln's Dilemma also gives voice to the narratives of enslaved people, shaping a more complete view of an America divided over issues including economy, race and humanity, and underscoring Lincoln's battle to save the country, no matter the cost."
