Maybe, you can try CASTING the compare date:

select * from TransactionTable
where  CAST(CreatedDate as datetime) between '2013/4/4' and '2014/4/4'

The foolproof way to do that, no matter what the column data type is, is:

where CreatedDate >= '2013-12-17' and
            CreatedDate < '2013-12-20'

Btw, you definitely don't want to use a function on the table column, as that will prevent index seeks from occurring for that column (in technical terms, a function call makes it "NONSARGABLE").

The problem is likely that you have a time element in your dates. When selecting '2013-12-19' it assumes a time of 00:00:00 or 12 am on the 19th. So any CreatedDate with a time other than midnight on the 19th will not be inclusive in your between clause. The easiest way to get around that is to use the >= and < as ScottPletcher has suggested.

It would only include midnight on 2013-12-20 and not any createdDate with a time value of greater than or equal to 00:00:01.
