Regular visitors might have noticed that a new page suddenly appeared here last night: a detailed timeline intermingling events in political and military history with key moments in the development of Bethel University.
This timeline is very much a work-in-progress: the War on Terror section has yet to be filled in past the events of 9/11/2001, and we’ll keep tinkering with what we provide for the two world wars, Vietnam, and the interwar and Cold War interludes. But this gives you a preview of what one key page will look like once the full Bethel at War website goes online. And, in the meantime, it provides another way for readers to explore what we’re researching and writing about. Enjoy!
