What was the major cause of death for children on the Oregon Trail? It wasn't disease or Indians.
Answer: Being crushed by wagon wheels. As the children became more tired, they'd walk closer and closer to the wagon. Tired children would stumble in front of the metal-rimmed wheels if their parents didn't watch them closely.
Who killed more settlers-Indians, outlaws, or other settlers?
Answer: Give guns to a bunch of city dudes who have no clue about gun safety and there are bound to be accidents. More settlers killed each other-accidently-than were killed by either Indians or outlaws.
