ABSTRACT
The article details the series of events when the army led by Tipu, son of the ruler of Mysore in India, repeatedly assaulted British East India Co. on September 10, 1780. Surrounded by swarms of cavalry, pounded by artillery and rockets, Colonel William Baillie and his rapidly dwindling force looked done for. At that moment, a column of red-coated infantry was spotted off in the distance. The battered Englishmen assumed it was the army of Major General Sir Hector Munro, advancing to relieve them and to turn the tables on Tipu.
