Before History

A Horizon server may be configured to only keep a portion of the stellar network’s history stored within its database.

The before_history error returns a 410 error code and occurs a client requests a piece of information (such as a page of transactions or a single operation) that the server can positively identify as falling outside the range of recorded history.
