What's in the words?

Is it only the words or is it something deeper that, when we refer to the time when British rule ended in India, we call it the time when "British Left India" ? But when Americans talk about the end of British rule in America. They say that it was when "We got independence" I am not saying that we don't use the words "We got independence " off and on, what i am saying is that America never uses "When British (or French for that matter) Left America".
