Historically, this was done in order to achieve a leading tone in the scale, so the V chord would have a major 3rd. So, it was done to create a harmonic functional motion. That's the origin of the name "harmonic minor". Simply changing this one scale note also affects any other chord that the 7th is also use on. As well as each mode of the scale.
These are the harmonies that result from the harmonic minor scale.
And these are the modes of the harmonic minor scale.
Locrian with major 6th
Ionian with #5th (or Augmented)
Dorian with #4th
Lydian with #2nd
Ultra Locrian or Jazz Altered
