    I doubt they call it that because Britain’s had quite a few of those in other parts of the Empire, so the name wouldn’t be distinctive enough.  They’ve even had a few in the upper half of North America, if you count the Lower Canada Rebellion (1837) and the Upper Canada Rebellion (same year), so it wouldn’t even be distinctive enough to call the American Revolution the “War of American Colonial Insurrection”.  Maybe “War of Insurrection in the Thirteen Colonies” would be better, or perhaps “War of Colonial Insurrection by the So-Called United States of America”, which would be quite a mouthful.
