Reason for undoing one of your changes to Q6299569Edit

Hello The Eloquent Peasant, I wanted to let you know that I have undone your edit in which you capitalized the word "general" in the English description of Juan César Cordero Dávila (Q6299569) and changed it to be uncapitalized. The reason for this is that the description is what that its name implies what it is meant to be, simply a description and so should reflect the capitalization one would use when describing the subject: "Juan César Cordero Dávila was a general". The word "general" would be only correctly be capitalized when being used as a title when referring directly to Juan César Cordero Dávila: "Major General Juan César Cordero Dávila was born in Puerto Rico".
