To call the Revolt of 1857 a "War of Independence" is an act of nationalist revisionism, considering that there was no such thing as an "Indian nation" to liberate. What we call "India" was a multitude of different states and areas under British sovereignty, and most of those areas were either neutral or actively supported the British during the Revolt of 1857.
