Awkward moment when you go over old code and can't quite remember (React)

I know what most of my code is doing here but I'm unsure as to what the "this.props.history.push(path)" is doing in the code below. I imagine it's pushing the interpolated string to the URL? As something like that would make context in what I was trying to do, but can't quite remember! This is why I should comment my code more to save myself from headaches...

import React, { Component } from 'react';

class Search extends Component{


    this.state = {
      searchText: 'search'

onSearchChange = e =>{
this.setState({searchText: e.target.value});

handleSubmit= e =>{
let SearchTerm = this.state.searchText
let path = `search/${SearchTerm}`;



<form className="search-form" onSubmit ={this.handleSubmit}>
        <input type="search"  placeholder="Search Flickr" onChange={this.onSearchChange} />
        <button type="submit" className="search-button">
          <svg fill="#fff" height="24" viewBox="0 0 23 23" width="24" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
