Best Answer

It is called the First war of Independence because this war started the movement in India to gain independence. Although it was not successful but the Indians came to know that they have to unify themselves and sacrifice many lives in order to defeat the British. It is so called because after this war many movements and revolutions were started against the British. This revolt thus accelerated the Independence process.
