Battle of Argaon
The Battle of Argaon (also known as Battle of Argaum) took place on 29 November 1803, between the British under the command of Major-General Arthur Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington) and the forces of Bhonsle of Berar and Scindia of Gwalior.
The next day, three of Wellesley's battalions, which had previously fought well, broke and fled under a cannonade by the Marathas near Sirsoli, three miles south of Adgaon,[a] and the situation was for a time very serious for the British. Wellesley, however, succeeded in rallying them, and in the end defeated the Marathas, with the loss of all their guns and baggage.
