In response to today's posting on trenches from Larry Weiss:

Charles Edelman is a military historian and not a philologist. LEME, the 
invaluable gathering of lexicons of early modern English, gives numerous 
examples of a trench as a bulwark, rampart and similar terms (though not 
as a sack of wool) - so trenches could go up as well as down!
