Doesn't the "D" only mean the day the operation started?

BTW, are we waiting for someone to get the right answer before adding a question of our own? I'm so confused! :think: This is why I never play games. LOL!

Mary Surratt (the first woman ever sentenced to hang in the U.S.)
Lewis Powell
David Herold and
George Azerodt (I'm not sure of the spelling on that one, so Fife, when you come around, just be forewarned that I'm in a panning mood. batEyes )
