He didn't know where the Union troops were because his cavalry corps were trying to reconnoitre the whole way round the enemy, which took them two days, in which interval Lee was out of touch with them.

During General Robert Lee's movement north why didn't he know the exact position of the Union army and how did he find out where it was?

The proximity of the Union army to Lee on June 28, 1863 was a surprise. General Lee didn't have contact with JEB Stuart during the early part of the invasion of Pennsylvania. Stuart's cavalry usually supplied important information such as the position and strength of the enemy. Lee was informed of the Union Army's exact position and relative strength via a spy "Harrison" employed by General James Longstreet.

When do you capitalize a staff position in a business letter?

You may capitalize a staff position when referring to a specific position, not referring to positions in general terms. It would be a personal choice, not correct or incorrect. Examples:We have several positions available for inspectors and one in quality control.We have three Line Inspector positions and one Quality Control Supervisor position open at this time.Using common nouns to describe the positions gives the reader a general idea what may be available. Capitalizing the position name shows that it is the exact position(s) available.
