That is not a good argument.  It is not (usually) the memorial itself which
is of
historic interest but the event or person it commemorates.

For example, this plaque was unveiled in 1993:
The event it commemorates took place in 1176 and is considered to be
of great cultural and historical significance:

That plaque could be destroyed by a car driving into it and be replaced by
a new plaque.  That new plaque would still qualify as historic=memorial
the moment it was installed, because the historical interest is in the event
it commemorates.
