If you haven't already, look at the information on getting started with these APIs.

Get a list of commits

GET https://{instance}/DefaultCollection/{project}/_apis/git/repositories/{repository}/commits?api-version={version}[&branch={string}&commit={string}&itemPath={string}&committer={string}&author={string}&fromDate={dateTime}&toDate={dateTime}[&$top={integer}&$skip={integer}]
Parameter Type Default Notes
URL
instance string VS Team Services account ({account}.visualstudio.com) or TFS server ({server:port}).
project string ID or name of the team project. Optional if specifying an ID for repository.
repository string ID of the repository.
Query
api-version string Version of the API to use.
branch string The name of a branch in the repository. (Cannot combine with commit parameter.)
commit string The id of a commit in the repository. (Cannot combine with branch parameter.)
itemPath string / Path of an item in the repository.
committer string Name of the person who committed the change.
author string Name of the author.
fromDate DateTime Start date to search from.
toDate DateTime End date to search to.
$skip integer 0 Number of commits to skip.
$top integer 100 Number of commits to return.
NOTE

Repositories have both a name and an identifier. Identifiers are globally unique, but several projects may contain a repository of the same name. You don't need to include the project if you specify a repository by ID. However, if you specify a repository by name, you must also specify the project (by name or ID).

By repository ID

If you do not specify any optional parameters, then we return all commits in the repository, regardless of reachability from branches.
