Please explain the use of "having" in "for having created...".
Would sentence still be grammatically correct if we use "for creating history"?

By using "having created" he's saying the action has ended in the past, in some unspecified moment. If he used "creating history", it would be correct, but he would be indicating that the action is still in progress.

I am still confused between the use of "for creating" and "having created".
