English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. confederacy

    Alliance is in its most common use a connection formed by treaty between sovereign states as for mutual aid in war. Partnership is a mercantile word; alliance chiefly political or matrimonial. Coalition is oftenest used of political parties; fusion is now the more common word in this sense. In an alliance between nations there is no surrender of sovereignty, and no union except for a specified time and purpose. League and alliance are used with scarcely perceptible difference of meaning. In a confederacy or confederation there is an attempt to unite separate states in a general government without surrender of sovereignty. Union implies so much concession as to make the separate states substantially one. Federation is mainly a poetic and rhetorical word expressing something of the same thought, as in Tennyson's "federation of the world," Locksley Hall, l. 128. The United States is not a confederacy nor an alliance; the nation might be called a federation, but prefers to be styled a federal union.

    Synonyms:
    alliance, coalition, compact, confederation, federation, fusion, league, partnership, union

    antagonism, discord, disunion, divorce, enmity, hostility, schism, secession, separation, war

    Preposition:
    Alliance with a neighboring people; against the common enemy; for offense and defense; alliance of, between, or among nations.

How to use confederacy in a sentence?

  1. Marc Leepson:

    When the Confederacy broke away, one of the first things that the Confederate Congress did was pick a flag, there was a big debate, and the debate centered on how close the flag should look to the American flag. They held a contest, and took votes, and what did they do ? They picked a flag with red and white stripes and stars.

  2. John Bankhead:

  3. Jefferson Davis:

    The people of the States now confederated.....believed that to remain longer in the Union would subject them to continuance of a disparaging discrimination, submission to which would be inconsistent with their welfare, and intolerable to a proud people. They therefore determined to sever its bounds and established a new Confederacy for themselves.

  4. Mack Williams:

    But it's for the Confederacy, which in my opinion, is a horrible thing, i don't think a work of art needs to be judged on its intent. ... I also don't think we should erase that and pretend it didn't happen or pretend it wasn't there.

  5. Sonya Patrick:

    If the Daughters of the Confederacy, if they had a lot or somewhere they want to take those, that would be great -- or maybe Fort Fisher.
