FOX Nation host Abby Hornacek takes a closer look at the topics and buzz words you find your friends and coworkers using to sound intelligent. Each week Abby and her expert guests will tackle topics we take for granted and help to explain the roots and meanings behind them.

This week, Professor Peter S. Onuf, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation Professor of History, Emeritus, at the University of Virginia, joins Abby in the classroom to help with her lesson plan. Professor Onuf discusses how early Americans came to declare their independence and what the history of the Fourth of July can teach us about our great nation.
