Server side copy, will history be copied too?

I need to create a project in the repository where I will use files that have been worked on in different test projects. All projects are part of the same repository.

So in the new project I will have both new files and files from two existing projects within the repository.
I know I could export the existing files into a directory on the client and collect the
old and new files here and then create the new project from this directory.
But then there is no history available for the old files preceding the current time...

I wonder if I will get the history along with the files if I make a server side copy:

svn cp <oldprojecturl>/filename <newprojecturl>/filename

Best Regards,
