you can't use historic=memorial for large sites. It's a tag for small
stuff, large memorials are tagged as historic=monument in OSM. Every
monument in OSM has to be a memorial, it is not sufficient to be a monument
That's how the tags are defined, regardless of actual linguistic usage
outside of OSM.
