un- +‎ retaliated

Examples

  • These, with innumerable other acts of cruelty, injustice, and ingratitude, are every day committed, not only with impunity, but without censure and even without observation; but we may be assured that they cannot finally pass away unnoticed and unretaliated.

    The Illustrated London Reading Book

  • I myself am a man and a Scotchman, and, as such, I feel offended at the unjust conduct of the English towards our country and sovereign; and thinking as you do yourself, I know what you must suffer when you are obliged to submit to national insults, unretaliated and unrevenged.

    Waverley Novels — Volume 12

  • "'I compassionate you,' would, in a very benevolent hour, be your language to the wealthy, unfeeling _tyrant of a family and a neighborhood_, who seeks, in the overawed timidity and unretaliated injuries of the unfortunate beings within his power, the gratification that should have been sought in their affections.

    The Atlantic Monthly, Volume 08, No. 48, October, 1861
