In June 1825, during the Greek War of Independence, Ibrahim Pasha attacked the mills of Argos with a force of 4,000 foot-soldiers and 600 cavalrymen from his regular army. General Makriyannis together with Ypsilantis, Mavromichalis and 300 men defended the position. After being reinforced by a detachment of the first regular Greek regiment, the Turko-Egyptian forces retreated in great disarray with heavy casualties.
At the battle of Faliron on the 5th February, 1827, Makriyannis commanded the corps of Athenians, under the orders of General Gordon.
