Keith Bonebrake discussed his new book at the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce
Bonebrake signs copies of his book for Chamber members and visitors. His brother

Civil War Research
Chamber of Commerce members and visitors learned about a real-life Civil War
era character (Cassius M. Clay ... but not the boxer). Former Collinsville resident
Bob Bonebrake (son of Alberta Bonebrake) described that character from his new
book which is a fictional adaption of the extensive Civil War research he had
done for years.
interest in the civil war traces back to his days at Collinsville High School
in history teacher Tom Brewster's class. Bob was not convinced with Brewster
assertion that the South didn't have a serious chance to win the war. Bonebrake's
new book follows some fictional what-ifs that would have changed history.
Chamber's computer crashed recently and this month's Quest Newsletter will be
a week late. Progress continues on remodeling the "Corner Bank" building
which will soon be the Chamber's office. Volunteers are still needed to help
complete several task rtemaining in that building on the SE corner of 11th and
Main. The Chamber's next meeting will be April 7th. Rev. Brumley asked for donations
to help fund the third annual After Prom Event.
