The Siege of Seringapatam in 1792 was a battle and siege of the Mysecian capital Seringapatam (Srirangapatna) at the end of the Third Anglo-Mysore War. An army led by Charles, Earl Cornwallis, consisting of the British East India Company and the British Army, as well as allied forces from the Maratha Empire and the Nizam of Hyderabad, arrived in Seroningapatam on 5 February 1792 and forced Tipu Sultan to surrender after less than three weeks of fighting and siege. With his agreement to the Treaty of Serineapatam on March 18, 1792, the war ended. The First Anglo-Mysore War ended in 1769 with the Treaty of Madras, which demanded the return of conquered territories and an agreement to help each other, the State of Mysore and the British in the event of a foreign attack. Ali hated the British and turned into an enemy after betraying the agreement with him, when the Marathas attacked him and annexed his territories, forced him to buy peace for Rs 36 Lakh and give annual tribute. The subsidiary alliance treaty allowed the British to control the foreign policy and defense of an Indian kingdom that submitted the agreement, while the Indian king was allowed to rule their region with reduced powers. General Medows` division did not go as well as the other two. Medows got too lost to the west in the darkness, and although he had successfully taken the westernmost refuge of the mystical line, he was prevented from approaching the island by a series of ravines and marshy land. This created a vacuum in the British lines between the centre and the right and exposed Cornwallis, who had held back from the lines with a single battalion, to personal danger. Tipu tried to take advantage of this rift to recover the camp and organized an infantry attack against the gap. Cornwallis was able to gather his men and repel the counterattack, but his hand was brushed by a bullet during the action.  Cornwallis hoped to use the treaty as a far-reaching peace settlement that would not only reduce or eliminate the threat of Mysore, but also avoid conflicts between Hyderabad and the Marathas. However, the Marathas had opposed the inclusion of such a language.
 In addition to Cornwalli`s grand army, General Robert Abercromby had ordered to lead a supporting army of about 6,000 men from the coast of Malabar (west).  Mr Baboo told The Hindu: “An American trader who knew my interest in historical documents informed me of the newspaper`s copy at some point in 2010. The price. was very high, because the merchant knew the value. It took me a few months to seal the deal. I harassed him to lower the price. Fearing another invasion, Tipu violated the Treaty of Srirangapatna with the British in 1792. Over the years, the Treaty of Srirangapatna became ineffective in bringing peace between Mysore and the British, paving the way for the Fourth and Final Anglo-Mysore War in 1799. War broke out in late 1789, when Tipu Sultan, the ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore, attacked Travancore, an admirer of the British East India Company. After just over two years of fighting, troops besieged the company led by Lord Charles, 2. Earl Cornwallis, with allied forces from the Maratha Empire and Hyderabad, in February 1792, the capital of Mysore, the Seringapatam (also called Srirangapatinam).  Instead of trying to storm the works that cost all parties dearly, Cornwallis entered into negotiations with Tipu to end the conflict. The resulting contract was signed on 18 March.
Ali formed an alliance with the Nizam and Marathas to defeat british forces at Arcot under madras` presidency at the time. To annex Mysore, the British had to make four wars with Tipu and his father in 1767-69, 1780-84, 1790-92 and finally in 1799. The September 8, 1792 edition of The Mail. contains details of the contract signed between Tipu and the Allied Commander, Lord Cornwallis. . . .
