M-x shell RET

Since emacs implement its own history and completion, the keys are
usually bound to emacs functions, and not passed to the inferior
shell.  

If you want to run an old command from ~/.bash_history, you could type:

sort -u < ~/.bash_history

then move to the line with the command and type RET.
