Caution Screenplay needed for Civil War movie

I am just desperate here! I cannot write a good screenplay to save my life!! Therefore I am looking for someone who can write a screenplay for a period drama set in the American Civil War. It should have at least one battle scene. This is for my first film so it can't be too long. I know I sound crazy and possibly naive but again, I need help. We will discuss pricing later. It all depends on what I can possibly afford. Thank you.

Richard, your credit list is a reminder that although I have come so far I still have a very long road ahead of me.

Welcome, indeed.

Hi, are you still looking for a script? I have written a story related to the American Civil War period. Could you tell me more about yourself and what you're looking for, and I'll tell you more about my story. I'm a new writer, unpublished, and writing is not job, do it just for fun on the side. Write me at davidweng55@aol.com and lets see if we can be a match. David
