Firstly, definition of Dysentery which might be a bit disgusting. According to WHO “Dysentery is bloody diarrhea, i.e. any diarrhoeal episode in which the loose or watery stools contain visible red blood. Dysentery is most often caused by Shigella species (bacillary dysentery) or Entamoeba histolytica (amoebic dysentery)”. In other words, Dysentery is being diarrhea with blood, the causes are from various ways but the main ways are infection from eating food which was prepared by someone who has Dysentery or you get the Shigella bacteria by touching something that has it. This is actually very contagious. The preventive methods are including always washing your hands and food safety while traveling.

Now, back to the game Oregon Trail. As the name, Oregon Trail is a trail that is 3,490 km long which connects Missouri to Oregon City. From 1811 to 1840, the Oregon Trail was created by fur traders and trappers. They passed the trail by feet or on horseback. In 1836, the first Wagon train was traveled from Missouri to Oregon which then, therefore, complete the name Oregon trail. So, in the Oregon trail game, it is a series of computer games which was first released on December 3, 1971, and the latest release was on December 6, 2011. The game was used as an educational tool that would teach children to understand the life of pioneer during the 19th century on the Oregon Trail.
The player will play as the wagon leader who will lead the wagon train from Missouri to Oregon ‘s Willamette Valley. The game will be over depending on your status which was either death or reaching Oregon.
