My General, I found you with our two French and Russian teams. You Hero who died in 1812 during the battle of valoutina gora. You who have been alongside Napoleon since school. You who had the leg ripped off and who suffered so much for your country. You who have been resting in the land of smolensk for 207 years. Respect to general Charles-étienne gudin, French Hero. One of the greatest days of my life.
It's amazing to see how many words he failed to capitalize, while capitalising "Hero" twice.

Who writes a name like that ("Charles-étienne gudin")?

I checked his Facebook. He usually correctly capitalises words.

Maybe he was tired and/or drunk when he wrote that specific post of his?

You're doing the thing where you ask questions that google can answer. :p

Yes, I just tried it now on a post from several years ago.

People fail to capitalise words plenty of times in English, but "general Charles-étienne gudin" looks awful. It was an important post, not a random one.

I almost never comment on stuff like this, but this was just terrible.
