How Would You Die On The Oregon Trail?

You got: You died of DYSENTERY

Don't be ashamed, for this is a classic death. If you spent more time purifying your water and properly cooking your meat, things might have turned out OK. But you just couldn't resist canoodling with that cutie in the other covered wagon.

You got: You DROWNED

So close, yet so, so far. As far as the bottom of the Snake River, that is. A river death is a noble way to go, though, and you shouldn't be ashamed that this is how you perished.

You got: You died of STARVATION

Oh man. You're such a great person to have on the wagon but your shooting skills aren't anything to write home about. You're also not great at fighting for food. Farewell, and better luck next time.

You got: You MADE IT

Whoa. You are a master of your craft and all should bow to you. May you receive all the riches of Oregon and spend the rest of your days in a mansion-cabin nestled in the Willamette Valley.
