Moultrie in Colquitt County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Colonial Dames of America Centennial Sundial
This sundial was given to the Moultrie Chapter of the Colonial Dames of America in 1993 to commemorate the 100th year of the founding of The Colonial Dames of America in Georgia. The sundial is the oldest known device that is used to measure time. It depends on the rotation and movement of the sun allowing the shadows formed to predict the time of day. The two figures resting on the urns of this sundial represent the rivers Savannah and Altamaha, the northeastern and southwestern borders of the colony of Georgia.
