Should I tag "Wagon Line" as a Place?

    Should I tag "Wagon Line" as a Place? I did out of abundance of caution but really seems to be fairly generic term so for future reference will leave out unless someone thinks otherwise?

    Obviously to the men of the unit the wagon line was a particular place, but for tagging purposes we're looking for actual place names: towns, villages, camps, like Lancaster Camp, and even actual trench names, such as Black Watch Alley or Invicta Trench. Another way to think of it is we're looking for places that could be found on a map or a trench map.

    Terms like wagon line or Camp A or Fosse 1 are too vague to help researchers locate the spot.
