(n00b question) How does one activate the scrollbar in an xterm?

I'm thinking that both .Xdefaults and xterm do not depend on the window mgr, so that .Xdefaults entries as well as xterm cmd options should function similarly on any x window mgr - at least when specifically about the xterm scroll history. Is its scroll history not controlled by xterm itself rather than by the window mgr?

However, the shell we use and instructions we have for it might determine the length of command history (which is not within context of this discussion/list).
