Bob Keith Bonebrake discussed his new book at the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce meeting Thursday.
Bob Bonebrake signs copies of his book for Chamber members and visitors. His brother Chuck Bonebrake in the white shirt joined him at the Chamber luncheon. Funds from his books sold today went to support Collinsville's Home Representatives Club.
Book Based on
Civil War Research
Collinsville 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.
Bonebrake's 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.
The 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.
