Create Vertical Timeline Line:

Create style.css file, and add the following css styles to create a Vertical Timeline Line and align it to center of the page.

.timeline{
	background-image: url("../images/line-1.png");
    background-position: center; 
    background-repeat: repeat-y;
    max-width: 960px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    position: relative;
    height: auto;
    padding: 0px;
    clear: both;
    overflow: hidden;
}

Style Timeline Year:

Now display the Year at the center of page and on the timeline line. Following css styles will align the Year at the center of the page.

.timeline li.year{
	clear: both;
	width: 4em;
	margin: 0 auto;
	line-height: 4em;
	background-color: #fff;
	border-radius:50%;
	text-align: center;
	margin-bottom: 25px;
	border: 1px solid #f39c12;
	
	box-shadow: 2px 2px 2px #888888;
	-moz-box-shadow: 2px 2px 2px #888888;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 2px 2px 2px #888888;
}
.timeline li.year:first-child{
	margin-top:0px;
}
.timeline li.year, .timeline li.event{
	list-style-type: none;
	z-index: 999;
}

Style The Responsive Timeline Feeds Vertically

First assign width and background colors to timeline feed. And now style the Timeline Feeds using css pseudo selector (:even, :odd).

.timeline li.event{
     width: 45%;
     background-color: #fff;
	margin-bottom: 20px;
	padding: 20px;
	position: relative;
	border-radius: 3px;
	-moz-border-radius: 3px;
	-webkit-border-radius: 3px;
	border-color: #e5e6e9 #dfe0e4 #d0d1d5;
        border-image: none;
        border-style: solid;
        border-width: 1px;
}

li.event:nth-child(odd) {
    color: green;
    clear:left;
    float: left;
}
li.event:nth-child(even) {
    color: red;
    clear: right;
    float: right;
    margin-top:100px;
    margin-bottom:50px;
}

Finally create knob lines which connects the feeds to timeline line using following CSS pseudo selectors (::after, ::before)

.timeline li.event:nth-child(odd)::after {
    background:red;
    content: "";
    height: 2px;
    position: absolute;
    right: -11.2%;
    top: 30px;
    width: 11.2%;
    
}
li.event:nth-child(even)::before{
	background:red;
    content: "";
    height: 2px;
    position: absolute;
    top: 30px;
    width: 11.2%;
    left: -11.2%;
} 

Design Responsive Timeline

Finally we are going to make this timeline to look nice even on the small screens i.e. mobile. With the help CSS media queries I am going to make this timeline feeds to align center of the page one by one.

@media (max-width: 640px) {
	.timeline li.event{
		width: 80%;
		background-color: #fff;
		border: 1px solid #ff0000;
		margin: 20px auto;
		padding: 20px;
		position: relative;
	}
	
	li.event:nth-child(odd) {
	    color: green;
	    clear: both;
	    float: none;
	}
	li.event:nth-child(even) {
	    color: red;
	    clear: both;
	    float: none;
	}
	
	.timeline li.event:nth-child(odd)::after, li.event:nth-child(even)::before {
	    width: 0px;
	}
}
