Given a transaction ID, how can I get:

  1. The timestamp that the transaction was first broadcast
  2. The timestamp that the transaction was first confirmed

In this case, I sent the transaction -- so I have access to the wallet that signed & broadcast the transaction. This week bitcoin transaction fees have been absurd ($20 for priority), so I sent it with a very low transaction fee, knowing it may take many hours or days to confirm (still faster & cheaper than a fiat Wire transfer).

Finally, the transaction did confirm, but I'm not sure exactly how many hours it took.

When I right click on the transaction and select View Transaction in the Electrum wallet, I see a Date field that appears identical to the timestamp visible on public blockchain explorers -- so I'm pretty sure that's the timestamp that the transaction was confirmed (or, rather, the timestamp in the header of the block that first included this transaction -- which was accepted by the network and is more or less precise).

But where in electrum (or otherwise) can I see the timestamp that the transaction was first signed/broadcast?
