The Battle of Argaon took place on November 29, 1803, between the British under the command of General Lord Arthur Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington) and the forces of Bhonsle of Berar and Scindia of Gwalior.
After Raghoji II Bhonsle and Daulat Rao Scindia was defeated at Laswari, they moved off November 28, 1803. The next day, three of Wellesley's battalions, which had previously fought well at Argaon, on this occasion broke and fled, and the situation was at one time very serious. Wellesley, however, succeeded in rallying them, and in the end defeated the Marathas, with the loss of all their guns and baggage. The British lost 346 killed and wounded.
