If you are using bash shell
(the history is recorded by shell and not by the terminal), then please find
the history log of commands in the file $(HOME)/.bash_history.

This is a text file and a hidden file. To have a look. run

$ ls .* (for dir listing)
$ vi .bash_history (to edit ???)

If you are not using bash command shell, then
it's man page should tell where the history is stored.
