Trying to determine if there is a method for getting an entry's last modified date, preferably date-time. Gave a good look over the docs and some searching and couldn't find anything other than the original creation date. Thanks.

You're looking for the dateUpdated property.

{{ entry.dateUpdated }}

Take a look at the EntryModel. The model has a dateUpdated property which will exactly output what you want:

{{ entry.dateUpdated }}

For anyone who is looking for an answer, noticed that this doesn't work without the date filter in craft 3:

{{ entry.dateUpdated|date('Y-m-d') }}

or date time:

{{ entry.dateUpdated|date }}
