1882 The organization and acts of the Confederation, established by a large portion of the Irish Nobility, Clergy, and people in the reign of Charles I, for the government of Ireland, through an elective representative body of their own selection, form important and as yet but little understood portions of Irish history. Declaring their allegiance to the King, but resisting the authority of the English Parliament, the Coufederates, through their Supreme Council, organized forces, nominated commanders and officials, collected revenue, levied taxes, minted coin, treated with foreign powers, and governed a considerable part of Ireland. The administration thus established was long maintained by the Confederates, not only in opposition to the Government at Dublin and to continuous hostile attacks from the English and Scotch settlers in Ireland, and those associated with them, but also against large military and naval forces despatched from England and Scotland.
