No. In the US Civil War, confederates were known as rebels and northerners were known as Yankees. As far as the Civil War goes, the words confederate and Yankee would be considered antonyms.
The Yankees are the Union. They are not the ones who left the United States. The Confederate did that. The most known Union general is Ulysses S. Grant. The most known Confederate general is Robert E. Lee ( I know you are not asking for facts on the Confederate, but i'm just trying to help you out.) The Yankees usually come into battle with more energy and more people. The Yankees won the Battle of Shiloh, Vicksburg, and Gettysburg. Remember, the United States are the Yankees. I hope this helped
The Union soldiers in the Civil War were sometimes called "yankees" or "yanks." The Confederate soldiers were sometimes called "rebels" or "rebs."

The members of the Confederate military were often referred to as "rebels" or "Johnny Reb". Conversely, Union soldiers were called the "Yanks" or "Yankees". Yankees was a nickname that stuck with the USA, especially in WW 1.
Yankees were supposedly against slavery, but the main reason this was said was to gain European sympathies during the Civil War. The war was started because the Union (yankees) wanted to keep the southern states from becoming the Confederate States of America.
