Search for newly published content.

Using the search in content explorer is there a way to create a search that returns items that has been published for the first time within a certain defined date period.

I’ve setup a search to return Published content that had a created on date within a date range but that will not return items that have been for example published and then workflowed back to ‘ReDraft’ or if the item was not created in the date range and then made public for the first time it would also not appear in the results.
