A campaignbox should only contain battles[edit]

This template, which was probably copied from the Spanish Wikipedia is flooded by too many so called battleplaces that happened to be peaceful occupations with no real clashes or losses. Cities like Durango and Tampico were back-and-forth occupied but none of them suffered a real defeat. I'm questioning also if immediate city surrenders deserve their spot in this template (and thus deserve a red link to their future article). Sieges (meaning blockades) are borderline cases but even having them icluded the list of battles could be easily halved (see French wikipedia counterpart for example).
