This chapter explores how rhetoric employs the concept of history. On the basis of the theory of time in the rhetorical situation the paper argues that rhetorical analysis has not yet fully applied the notion of time and history to itself. Giving the example Horatio Nelson's last words, the chapter indicates how a truly historical conception of rhetorical theory maybe developed.
